Construction of a new trash enclosure started last week at Cremer hall.
There are many big trash receptacles around campus to remove all the trash outside of the buildings and dump it at a common place. To make the campus look better, campus committee has built brick wall enclosures surrounding these receptacles.
Building the enclosure costs $65,000, which is part of the Morse renovation project. This project is being paid for by bonds, which will be paid off through student housing fees.
As a part of Morse demolition, a trash enclosure was demolished with it. As a new plan, the committee decided to move the enclosure to Cremer hall.
“The trash receptacle, which was by Morse complex, was set up to be used by Cremer, Butcher and Morse,” said Gwen Larson, assistant director of marketing and media relations. “Since the demolishment of Morse these buildings have been without a trash enclosure for a while.”
There are many enclosures built at different parts of the campus. Two of those are located at the east side of Plumb hall and South-east corner of Schallenkamp.
“Student body president from last year and a student from residential life were part of the committee to discuss this plan,” said Tim Clark, director of facilities planning.
The students from Cremer hall have to face some disturbance during classes from the construction noise.
“The construction noise interrupts the class sometimes, but I am happy about the effort they are putting in to make the campus better,” said Yifang Hao, graduate business administration major.
