“The first thing we should note is that the guys worked very safely,” said Matt Winslett, engineering manager for Facilities Division’s Energy Management. “This was a high, heavy and dangerous electrical installation requiring a 65-foot electrical man lift.

UAB employees can now recycle used toner and ink cartridges by dropping them in Campus Mail. The new program aims to make recycling as easy as possible for employees, and, in return, UAB will receive a check for the recycled cartridges.
“I think that working smarter is always better, and that’s part of the reason why Campus Mail was such an obvious choice,” said Paula Mitchell, director of Print and Mail. “Employees don’t have to worry about where to put the cartridges, they just put them with their outgoing mail and we’ll take care of it.”
