Wetland Clean-Up - October 22, 2019 5:00 PM

Posted October 9, 2019

Tailgating before UNI football games is incredibly fun. Unfortunately, litter is a common byproduct of tailgating. The RRTTC and UNI Office of Sustainability are hosting the Wetland Clean-Up on October 22 to remove this litter from campus. The event starts at 5 p.m. located at the recreational ponds north of the WRC and parking lot. Stick around for free pizza at The Other Place afterward!

RRTTC serves as a research, education and outreach center for the development of economical approaches to solving intractable solid waste problems, providing research and technical assistance on public health concerns as they relate to solid waste concerns.
