EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Mount Trashmore will soon take shape on the campus of Aquinas College.

On Thursday, October 10, all campus garbage from the previous day will be gathered and dumped in the Wege Plaza.  Students and volunteers will sort through the waste, picking out items that could have been composted or recycled.  The demonstration is meant to raise awareness about environmentally conscious living.  Aquinas has set a goal of becoming waste free by 2014.

The trash sorting demonstration will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.   Visitors are encouraged to sign a sustainability pledge.
