The Environmental Science Club has been collecting interesting facts regarding the sustainability efforts of CBU:
80% of the front lawn irrigation is provided by two wells on campus that tap into a local groundwater basin.
In many areas, sprinklers have been changed to drip lines.
We have changed over plumbing fixtures on campus to low-flow models.
Multiple areas on campus have bottle fillers instead of water fountains.
We are in the process of exchanging light fixtures to an LED alternative.
In most campus administrative/classroom buildings, lights and temperature are controlled by sensors.
Lancer Palms (8471 Magnolia - across Magnolia from main campus) is partially powered by solar.
Every common area, office area and administrative area has recycle bins for all recyclable materials (paper, cans, bottles, etc).
Housing areas have recycle bins in their common/gathering spaces.
Every trash enclosure contains a white "recycle" bin.
