One man's trash is another man's potential donation to charity. That's the way Resident Advisor Bethany Heidenreich and the residents in the Cedar House apartments at Shawnee State University feel. They have taken that philosophy and turned it into reality.
Heidenreich, along with the newly created Campus Recycling Club and its president Lisa Morrissett have spearheaded the campus recycling program, taking all types of recyclable materials and donating the money raised from the recyclables to a breast cancer research fund.
The program is open to all students, faculty, staff and even the community. Aluminum cans may be dropped at Cedar House 7 on Union Street in Portsmouth on Wednesday evenings, while other materials can be dropped at several Rumpke Recycling bins on campus. Recycling receptacles are placed across campus and they are open for anyone to use at any time.
