CCU gets statewide recycling award

March 29, 2010

Coastal Carolina University recently received the Recycling Event of the Year Award from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC).

CCU was honored for its 2009 Campus Salvage Program, to which students donate reusable items (such as furniture, entertainment centers, etc.) at the end of the year for resale the next year. The award is part of DHECs Recycle Guys Awards program, which recognizes the states top recycling programs and the people who organize them.

Marissa Mitzner, CCUs Sustainability Coordinator, accepted the award. She was named the Universitys first sustainability coordinator in 2008 after serving in the position as a student.
