Join us in GCI or over zoom to learn about how to “Recycle Right” at UQ. This session will cover UQ’s most recently added waste streams, such as organics and soft plastics, while helping to answer any questions you might about recycling or waste disposal at UQ. 

The session will conclude with a tour of GCI by Green Office Representative, Whitney Jeffery, who will take you through the different changes she has made to the waste streams in the building.
