The 2013 Georgia Tech Earth Day Celebration was a time to celebrate the many elements of earth, as attendees came out on a wet spring day to celebrate their devotion to Mother Nature.
This month's Recycling Buzz includes photos of the event, as well as information about recipients of the festival's annual awards. This issue also highlights upcoming events in the area, including the Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable on June 7 and the Collegiate Sports Sustainability Summit being hosted on campus June 25-26.
The Earth Day buzz has hit campus, and the Recycling Buzz has all the details for planning your celebration.
This month's issue features the full Earth Day schedule, as well as information about Tech Beautification Day, electronics recycling and other upcoming events. Read or download (but please, don't print) the Recycling Buzz (pdf).

Starting Spring Break, the Department of Housing will implement a new single stream recycling system to replace the multi-stream process that Georgia Tech currently uses.
“Single stream recycling means that students don’t have to sort out their recycled trash,” said Bob Canada, the Procurement Officer for the Department of Housing.
Earth Day is still a couple months away, but the campus planning committee has already unveiled the event's signature T-shirt.
Each year, the Georgia Tech Earth Day celebration features a T-shirt distributed to attendees that is designed by a Tech student, faculty or staff member. The February issue of the Recycling features this year's design that accompanies the theme "Tech for a Greener Future."
This year, Georgia Tech serves as host school for the 75th celebration of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship being held in Atlanta. Nearly 2,000 volunteers are needed during the Final Four and at ancillary and community events, including at a tree planting.
This semester, a group of students in the College of Comuting worked with Tech's Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling (OSWM&R) to develop a recycling app for Georgia Tech. Kyle Kukshtel, Madhura Bhave and Clay Garrett created “Bin There” as part of their senior design course Computing for Good.
