The University of New England has a history of protecting and preserving the environment, and "environmental stewardship" was identified as a core value in the University's latest Strategic Plan. One of the University's many programs fostering environmental stewardship is its recycling program. The UNE Environmental Council and Campus Services have implemented single-sort recycling programs on the Portland and Biddeford campuses, working in conjunction with EcoMaine.
To make these recycling programs a success, the University draws upon strong student involvement in the programs. We encourage students in the citizenship program to use their community service hours on-campus with the recycling programs. We also encourage students to consider the possibility of tailoring their academic internships to work with the recycling program.
