NYUAD Sustainability Initiatives

Did you know the UAE has the 3rd largest ecological footprint of all countries in the world? This is actually quite an improvement from 2006 when the UAE was number one. So, what is NYUAD doing to help? Here are some initiatives the NYUAD Sustainability Steering Committee is planning for the 2015-2016 academic year as part of their two key focus areas:

  • Replacing plastic shopping bags with bio-degradable and reusable bags
  • Phasing out plastic water bottles
  • Composting NYUAD’s yard waste
  • Planting a community garden
  • Recycling boxes and paper resulting from move-in/move-out on campus

Please take notice of the waste signs that have also been posted throughout the residential community. Please sort your recyclables and bring the rest of your waste to the refuse room on the ground floor.

**NEW** Laundry Holds!

Our laundry rooms now have laundry holds! ...A6 has laundry room swag! You may use these when a laundry cycle has finished and clothes have not yet been taken from the machine. Just take those clothes out of the machine and put them in a laundry hold. When the next resident comes to pick their clothes up, they won't find them thrown around the laundry room!

...that's it folks. See ya next week!
