Power of a Single Action
Sustainability is open territory — there is much to be accomplished and plenty of room for innovation. Pioneers are needed at all levels who can make important contributions and have a profound impact on our future. We invite you to become an active participant and to expand your awareness of sustainability on campus and throughout the communities in which you live, work, and play. After all, it’s the power of a single action that brings about change.

On the Delta College campus, two types of cardboard are collected for recycling. Corrugated cardboard constitutes the college's largest volume of recyclable material. It has a waffle layer between two outer paper layers and includes most shipping boxes. Corrugated boxes may be reused for packing and shipping. Boxboard, such as tablet backing and file folder boxes, are also acceptable. Learn how to prepare your cardboard for recycling (PDF).
