'Tis the Season to Travel Sustainably


Compliments of Parking and Transportation Services

Save a seat on the Winter Break Ride Home Express. PTS offers bus trips to 15 cities as an alternative way for students to head home for the holidays.
Instead of driving to Blue Grass Airport, take advantage of the free airport shuttles offered by UK Parking and Transportation Services.
Pass on parking next semester - opt for two wheels instead of four. The Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library is accepting entries for their spring semester bike lottery.

Leaving Campus for the Holidays?

Consider Donating Before Throwing Away

Students heading out of their residence halls or Greek housing can create a large amount of waste. In an effort to reduce this, the UK Recycling Office, in partnership with UK Housing, Residence Life, and UK Fraternity and Sorority Life, is offering Give and Go Donations Stations in the lobbies of each residence hall and Greek house.

Students are asked to consider donating items such as clothing, household items, and un-opened, non-perishable food. Brown paper bags will be available in the donation station for food items. Students can place household items, such as clothing, shoes, toiletries, bedding, and school supplies in large blue plastic bags provided. All the bags will be collected and delivered to the Lexington Women’s Hope Center.

Also, students are encouraged to recycle as much as they can by placing their recyclables such as cardboard boxes, empty pizza boxes, plastic bottles and jugs, aluminum cans and paper in the recycling compactor or dumpsters. For a complete list of recyclable materials, please visit the UK Recycling webpage.

Landfill waste should be bagged and placed inside dumpsters or open top containers provided for you.
