Florescence Bulbs and Ballast

Computers, printers, and media equipment can be recycled by requesting a work order for pick up via Operations (704) 406-4330.
The housekeeping department is using green certified cleaning products. Switching from traditional cleaning products to biodegradable, low toxicity or otherwise less harmful products can drastically improve the environmental profile of routine cleaning activities without sacrificing cleaning effectiveness.
RCRA is the resource conservation and recovery act. This law was enacted in 1976 to put regulations on the handling and disposal of different types of waste. The primary goal of RCRA is to protect human health and the environment from the hazards of improper waste management. Gardner-Webb is committed to comply with this law.
Please contact email@example.com with any observations, questions, or concerns regarding disposal of solid and hazardous waste on campus.
