La Crosse, WI (WXOW) How much of what's thrown away could be recycled? That's a question Western Technical College officials set out to answer Monday morning.
They call it the annual Dumpster Dive. It's one event marking Earth Week on campus.
WTC President Lee Rasch and Vice President of Operations Mike Pieper went into a campus dumpster, looking for recyclables.
Lee Rasch says he hoped to find few recyclables. Whatever the find, the goal is the same - creating awareness. They want students to recognize how much of what goes into a dumpster could actually go the recycle bin.
The Dumpster Dive is just one event this week. To learn more about what WTC is doing to provide education and create awareness about Earth Week, you can go to www.westerntc.edu/green.
