“We’re excited to be able to offer another recycling option for our customers,” said Jon Paolone, Recycling Coordinator. “Recycling electronics is usually a hassle, and a lot of people throw old printers, monitors, and similar items away. Those things almost certainly end up in a landfill, which is what we want to avoid. Now our customers can bring those manageable items to the Recycling Center and we will make sure they’re recycled properly.”
Following the retirement of Max Richard, long-term Assistant Vice President for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), the Facilities Division and Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development have reorganized the department to continue to build on its service to its campus and hospital customers.
The department is unique in its ties to the research units and to the university as a whole. In order to better serve its varying functions, different groups within the department will report to either Dr. Lauretta Gerrity, Senior Associate VP for Research Administration or to Jolene King, Assistant Vice President of Facilities Administration. The split will not require a physical relocation for any of the groups.
