University debuts biodegradable trash bags

| | Comments (0)

The University of Chicago’s Landscape Services is making the transition to biodegradable trash bags! These pale, yellow, translucent bags may be found in exterior trash containers around campus. Not only have the biodegradable bags held up well, but they’re cheaper than the old black trash bags. The University’s Landscape Services will use their remaining black trash bags, but in the future, plans to purchase the biodegradable bags from Onyx, an approved University vendor. Keep an eye out for these new trash bags around campus!
