Transcript Earth Day Celebration of Awareness ACT I The UH Environmental Law Society, UH Team Earth and the Recycling Task Force were some of the groups on campus who did their part to recycle in the true spirit of Earth Day. Randall Horton, assistant director of Publications, said the recycling program started this fall and the first recycling pickup was on Feb. 14. Paper was being saved for recycling at E. Cullen and the Printing Department, he said. Paper recycling would soon be carried out at the library and in Agnes Arnold and Philip Guthrie Hoffman Halls. Daphne Everage, a second-year law student and president of the UH Environmental Law Society, said they had been recycling cans at the law center for about a year with enormous success and hoped to expand to recycling paper. "We have had such a great response that our boxes for cans are overflowing and people are having to place cans on top." We have been involved in working with the Audubon Society in presenting a slide presentation to elementary children on how they can help the environment and animals," Everage said. ELS started a Volunteer Environmental Research Program this year to do research for attorneys pro bono (without charge) dealing with environmental issues, she said. Kennedy said, "We started recycling newspaper in the residence halls by having students leave the newspaper in the hallways and transporting it by Branden Humphries' old pickup truck. But his truck couldn't take it anymore and we had to stop because we didn't have the resources to continue. ACT II Team Earth sponsored a recycl-a-thon at Lynn Eusan Park, between E. Cullen and Moody Towers, where two pickup truck loads of paper and eight bags of aluminum cans were collected, Kennedy said. "Right now we are focusing on an Earth Day Coalition, which includes students not only from UH, but also Rice and Texas A&M. The coalition is meeting April 22 at Hermann Park to contribute to Earth Day," Kennedy said. Horton said the Task Force wants to get everyone involved in recycling and to make recycling at UH more viable. He said one problem was the project had to be profitable for a recycling company. "We first had a contract with Texas Shredding for a little over a month, when they decided it was not profitable for them to continue. - Debbie Housel 44 RE Issue^PE
