A student group on campus decided to promote climate change awareness by spreading garbage all over the Oval. Climate Action Now! participated in Global Climate Change Week by completing a dumpster dive. A dumpster dive involves taking a sampling of garbage from dumpsters on campus and sorting out the recycling from the true trash. More specifically, the group was looking for recyclable plastics, tin, and aluminum- all materials commonly thrown away on college campuses. Photographer Dariga Massenova and reporter Drew Trafton help "sort out" the story.
