Elmhurst College has undertaken a number of efforts to reduce air pollution on campus. Among them, we are attempting to reduce idling time of commercial vehicles on our grounds. We ask that you adhere to the following practice when performing services at the College.
Please limit vehicle idling time on campus grounds to no more than three minutes. Drivers of buses and commercial vehicles are asked to turn off engines upon arrival and restart them near departure time or at a time recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. We recognize the need for operation of heating and cooling and auxiliary equipment, but ask that idling for these purposes be minimized.
Our Campus Security personnel will be reminding drivers of our desired practices. We ask for your cooperation in our efforts and ask that you share our goals to reduce pollutants in the air on our campus. If you have further questions, please refer them to the College’s Sustainability Committee at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support.
