This week’s Staff Spotlight features Reedcyler.
Who: Kyle Reed, Student Outreach Assistant for Campus Recycling for the last two years.
What he does here:
I help plan and execute all of the recycling events on campus, and work closely with volunteers in the Waste Watchers club. I also spearhead the department compost program.
One fave thing about his job:
I love seeing an event come together after weeks of planning and coordination. The Repair Fairs in particular are great, because I get to see so many satisfied faces when an item is fixed. Also, I love seeing all of the weird stuff that comes in through recycling and surplus.
If he could improve one thing about waste reduction at OSU:
No more disposable coffee cups on campus. Coffee-goers could either bring their own reusable mug, or receive a durable mug which they would return, similar to Eco2Go.
This post is part of the”Recycling/Surplus Staff Spotlight” blog series, which showcases staff from Campus Recycling and Surplus Property and will run regularly during the summer. Tune in throughout the summer for more.
