“Georgia Tech strives to be a leader in sustainability and environmentally conscious programs,” said Rich Steele, Senior Director, Georgia Tech Auxiliary Services. “Our laundries need new equipment on a regular cycle and we wanted to make sure the improvements included energy efficient equipment.”
The installation of the new equipment in the 15 laundries will begin May/June 2012 and will be completed and open for operation on or before August 1, 2012. Students will begin using the new energy efficient washers and dryers then.
A price increase will also become effective, July 1, 2012 with a complete wash cycle at $1.50 (from $1.25) and the 10-minute dryer cycle at $.30 (from $.25). This is the first price increase in seven years. The BuzzCard will remain as the only acceptable form of payment in the laundries.
As more details become available, announcements will be posted on ImportantStuff.gatech.edu.
