Lakehead University has a dismal recycling program currently in place. Rarely seen are the recycling receptacles so common in other institutions. The lack of these containers forces students, staff, and guests to throw away what CAN be reused. Not only are drink recycling receptacles nearly impossible to locate, there is a acute lack of recycling services even for paper! As a Shad Valley student at Lakehead University this past July, where the theme of the Shad Cup was "ZERO WASTE", I was absolutely appalled and shocked that a university could be so wasteful. A few examples: at the Tim Horton\'s in the Agora, I asked the cashier to please recycle my used Dasani water bottle. I was then informed that they didn\'t have recycling receptacles. Living in North Residence for a month, many of us Shads had collected a large supply of water bottles, pop cans and other recyclable materials in our dorm rooms. We were then told to just throw them away, as Lakehead University "[didn\'t] really care about recycling". We, the undersigned, beseech Lakehead University\'s Board of Governors and the Senate to expand the recycling programs at the university for both paper products and drink containers.
