Green Campus

Red Deer College is on the road to becoming a greener campus for a more environmentally friendly future. The RDC Green Campus Task Group has an important goal: to inform and educate the College community about the importance of energy and water conservation and other pertinent environmental issues. We establish targets and implement protocols for the reduction, recycling, and re-use of materials. Programs are also initiated to encourage the use of alternate transportation, increase recycling and improve energy conservation.
 

Alternative Transportation

  • Walking/Cycling
  • Carpooling – discuss the option of carpooling with your colleagues
    • Register for the employee or the student carpooling programs at RDC.
    • Submit your form to RDC's Parking Office (located in the main hallway on main campus, in the Cashier's Office).
    • Questions? Visit the Parking Office in person, or parking [at] rdc [dot] ab [dot] ca (contact us)
  • Transit 

Recycling

RDC will strive to increase the amount of recycling done on our campuses by educating our College community and encouraging them to incorporate environmentally friendly practices:

  • Bring your own mug and/or water bottle
  • Pack your lunch in a re-usable bag
  • Use the designated on-campus recycling bins
  • Other recycling (paper, batteries etc.)

Energy Conservation

  • Water Conservation
  • Lights Out Program
  • Power Down Program

Reduce

Through our Alternative Energy Initiative, RDC will aim to reduce the consumption of natural gas, electricity and power. We will also strive to decrease the impact on local landfills by implementing composting and waste diversion.
