Sustainability at the Methodology Center
Green Paws Certification
In February 2011, the Methodology Center became certified in Green Paws Levels 1 and 2. We were the first at Penn State to be Level-2 certified. We received our Level 3 certificate in October, 2012.
One of our most important initiatives is upcycling. We collect items that would otherwise be thrown away and send them to places where they can be made into useful items. Contact Amanda Applegate (AApplegate@psu.edu) if you'd like to come see our Upcycle station or find out what items you can drop off here. The list of items we can take changes regularly. You can also find campus-wide information at http://www.green.psu.edu/psuDoing/recycling/Terracycle.asp. Some examples of items we collect:
- granola/energy bar wrappers
- cheese packaging
- many plastics
- health and beauty packaging
