As we have done the last couple of semesters, we are working on removing macroscopic pollution from RIT’s campus. Our plan this semester was to clear trash from Bailey Woods (nearby the solar panel field). Last semester we were able to pull 400+ pounds out of a large plot on Jefferson Rd. After a month and a half of planning, getting cleared through EHS and FMS for a pickup date, and many ambitious volunteers ready to go, our plans were cut short due to COVID-19. Our plan is to continue where we left off and surpass our initial goal of 100-200 lbs next semester. We will continue this project until the major dumpsites around campus are cleared.
