Make all recycling stations the same!

Every campus recycling station is different!  There is no way to know until you are standing in front of one what you can put into it, or which container your item should go into.  For example, you can compost only in Davis!  Some stations have containers for paper and everything else, other places you can sort bottles from paper or plastic... this makes people have to rethink their recycling decisions every time!  It makes no sense!  Let's make it easy for people who aren't recycling oriented -- have the same three or four bins everywhere with the same big colorful directions!
