The Georgia Institute of Technology announced today that it will be upgrading all of its residence hall laundries, bringing them up-to-date environmentally.
“Georgia Tech strives to be a leader in sustainability and environmentally conscious programs,” said Rich Steele, acting executive director of Georgia Tech Auxiliary Services. “Our laundries need new equipment on a regular cycle and we wanted to make sure the improvements included energy efficient equipment.”
The installation of the new equipment in the 15 laundries will begin in May and will be completed and open for operation by August 1.
A price increase will also become effective July 1, with a complete wash cycle at $1.50 (from $1.25) and the 10-minute dryer cycle at $.30 (from $.25). This is the first price increase in seven years. The BuzzCard will remain as the only acceptable form of payment in the laundries.
As more details become available, announcements will be posted on importantstuff.gatech.edu.
