Community Resources

The Office of Sustainability is partnering with the following community-based organizations to advance sustainability in Hyde Park, Woodlawn and Washington Park:

Experimental Station, located at 6100 S Blackstone Ave, is a not-for-profit incubator of innovative cultural, educational, and environmental projects and small-scale enterprises.

Blackstone Bicycle Works is a local bike shop in the Woodlawn area. In addition to being a full-service bike shop and running many youth programs, they refurbish abandoned campus bikes for the University’s recycles program.

The Resource Center has over 30 years of experience in non-profit recycling and reuse. They have been composting the waste from the University’s dining halls since 1994.
