Welcome to Werner University Center’s sustainability page!

What we currently do:

  • Utilize “green” chemicals in cleaning throughout the WUC
  • Utilize waterless urinals in two bathrooms in the WUC, saving 1000’s of gallons of water.
  • Utilizing automatic towel dispensers in bathrooms to cut down on waste
  • Utilizing auto-shut off sinks to reduce water usage
  • Using more efficient T8 light bulbs in the building to cut energy usage and disengaging some office light bulbs to reduce energy consumption.
  • Winter 2009 – replace chiller with a more environmentally-friendly model that will use less energy.
  • Recycling batteries/toner cartridges
  • Dual-flush toilets throughout the facility – reducing water usage when possible
  • In-Room Recycling stations
  • Tenants in the facility have worked on sustainability plans to reduce, reuse and recycle more in their areas!
  • Adding auto light sensors to many areas within the WUC to turn lights off when not in use.
  • Bike Repair station located outside the Pacific Room
