*Several faculty have asked students to turn in their assignments
electronically.  
*We also host a drive to recycle old computers and other appliances each
year in our parking lot.
*I run the learning center and I have set all of the computers to go on
standby/energy save mode if they have not been used for a certain amount
of time.  
*Our registrar's office has recently made several initiatives to reduce
paper by using online registration, grade submission, etc.
*Our cafeteria has "Trayless Tuesdays" in which students do not use
trays in order to decrease the amount of wasted food.  They are of
course encouraged to go up for seconds if they are still hungry.  This
initiative has been successful and the university is considering going
trayless full time.
*There are several environmentally friendly service-learning projects
taking place, but I do not know the details of all of them. 

That's all I can think of off-hand, but will let you know if I think of
any more.

Betty,

Recycling is important, but that is only half the battle. The other half

is reducing the amount of materials used. I am sure your campus is
already 
explring ways to reduce the amount of paper used, but I encourage your 
committee to take a very hard look at some of the paperwork routinely 
generated on campus and see how much of it can be eliminated or replaced

with digital documents.
