CSRMinute: Dell expands recycling program; Texas U's Student Service HQ wins green building award - 02 Jan 2012

Dell has expanded its computer recycling program to 319 additional Goodwill donation sites. With the expansion, Dell Reconnect will be offered in 77 additional counties across Florida, Ohio, Alabama, and Kansas. There are now more than 2,600 Goodwill drop-off locations in the U.S. and Canada which give seven million households access to free electronics recycling. The expansion will divert an estimated 7.5 million pounds of unwanted electronics from landfills annually.

The Student Services Building at the University of Texas at Dallas has won the 2011 Innovation in Green Building award. The award, given by the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, recognizes a college or university that is revisiting the way it develops its physical campus, and how the school uses Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—LEED—as a tool for campus greening. The building is the first LEED Platinum facility in the University of Texas system.
