Electronic Waste Recycling Program
E-waste is collected and either sold at surplus sales or is transported to the appropriate disposal site in a near by city. Workers are not expected to take e-waste apart, lift any great quantities and are not exposed to any harmful materials.
Hazardous Waste Management
The art department no longer uses oil-based paints. We have greatly reduced our use of non-tclp compliant fluorescent lamps. We have reduced our use of oil-based paint for maintenance painting. New purchases of chemistry faculty are based on the least hazardous products and lowest quantities necessary.
We use a state contract with a certified contractor to pick up and dispose of hazardous and universal wastes from our campus 1 to 2 times per year.
Furniture, appliances, office organizational items, etc. are sent to surplus throughout the year. Two or three times a year there are surplus sales. Prior to the sale the campus departments can see if items in surplus can be reused for their needs.
Students are allocated a certain dollar amount at the beginning of each semester.
Course Catalogs – All course catalogs since 2007 are available online at http://registrar.truman.edu/catalog/. Catalogs previous to 2007 are available as PDF files.
Directories – All faculty, staff and students are automatically loaded into the electronic directory and this information is retrievable from the web. A special web utility is also a part of the base template, and this tool automatically generates directories by department.
Move-Out Waste Reduction
Recycling is encouraged at all times but extra emphasis is put on move-out times. Some of the residence halls coordinate free-cycle opportunities.
