Sustainability

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
• Compost bins and portable compost bins for events
• 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
