Before and After Trash Improvements

"Before & After" - Trash Area Aesthetic Improvements

For several years, the UVM Recycling and Solid Waste office has been working on improvements to the aesthetics of trash collection areas on campus.  Below are examples of improvements that have been completed in the past 5 years as special project funds are available. These improvements have been completed in conjunction with construction and renovation projects already happening on site.

LOCATION:  Chittenden Buckham Wills Residence Hall (Fall 2005)

PROJECT: Replaced an older style trash compactor which sat out in the middle of the parking lot. New trash compactor is larger, more efficient unit. This will reduce the amount of truck traffic to the area, by reducing trash pickup to once per week rather than six days per week.  As part of the Fletcher Allen Renaissance Project, the area was screened with an attractive lattice fence. Special thanks to Luce Hillman, Physical Plant Project Engineer; Lester and Joe, Electrical Shop; MBM (the Fletcher Allen contractors); and Barney McRae, Vermont Compactor Service...for making this project a success.

LOCATION:  Mann Hall - Trinity Campus (Summer 2004)

PROJECT: We improved the existing, dilapidated wooden fence enclosure at Mann Hall, replacing it with a more sturdy enclosure made with steel posts, and attractive lattice. Special thanks to Luce Hillman and Scott O'Brien for working on the details and with the contractors to make this project happen.

LOCATION:  Hunt  Hall - Trinity Campus (Summer 2004)

PROJECT: The recycling carts sat on grass in front of building out in plain view. We relocated the carts to back side of building, creating an asphalt walkway and screening with sturdy fencing to control blowing litter. (City of Burlington did not allow us to put up lattice work on this location).  Special thanks to Luce Hillman and Scott O'Brien for working on details and with contractors to get this job done.
