Sustainability in Your Life

Campus Recycling

Recyclables are collected and processed from all college buildings by the Augustana College Facilities Services Department. All TLA houses and rental houses have recycling through the City of Rock Island's recycling program.
Augustana has placed first among all participating Illinois colleges and universities in the per-capita weight of recyclables in the nationwide RecycleMania competition since 2007.

Getting Around

Your Augustana College ID provides unlimited access to the Metro bus system.  You can "share" a car by renting by the hour from U-Haul, from cars parked here on campus. Burlington Trailways picks up here on campus daily, with stops in Naperville and downtown Chicago.
