Thomas Nelson Community College is launching a major campaign to raise awareness about the importance of recycling on our campuses. Called  Think Green… Recycle, the campaign strives to reduce the amount of waste the College produces by increasing the amount of material TNCC recycles. The goal is to help conserve the environment.

The effort seeks participation from students, faculty, staff and administrators alike with everyone using the large blue bins that have been placed throughout campus for recyclable items ? newspapers, magazines, steel/tin and aluminum cans, unwanted mail, phone books, books, cardboard, plastic and glass bottles. Desk side recycle containers are also available for office areas upon requests to the College’s Night Operations Manager Jerry Golden.
