Penn State has committed to "closing the loop" on its solid waste through a new program called möbius. University Park currently diverts 65 percent of its solid waste from landfill. With a new and unprecedented program, which includes campus-wide composting of organic waste, we’ll reach 75 percent.
Penn State York students, faculty, staff, and friends and neighbors will clean-up the campus woods from noon to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 20 as part of an Earth Day Celebration. The event is being organized by the campus' recently formed Green Team, the Penn State York Student Government Association, and the Penn State Sustainability Office. Sunday, April 22 is the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day and a variety of events are set to take place across the University.
