May 4 recycling sale to benefit Pitt program

A recycling sale will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. May 4 at the Jewish Community Center in Squirrel Hill to support Pitt's LINCS community-building project and other non-profit groups. Items can be donated from noon to 5 p.m. tomorrow, May 3, in front of the William Pitt Union.

The sale is the brainchild of Lisa Heller, a graduate student in the Department of Communication, who wants to recycle usable items left by students at the end of the term. She has run similar programs at 12 other schools.

"This is not about discarding things," explains Heller. "It's about donating things to be recycled. Our main agenda here is to make sure that the landfills are not overtaxed with discards."
