Blueboxing is an environmental partnership between Community Living Peterborough, Fleming College and Trent University. Volunteers who receive supports from Community Living dedicate their time to green projects at one or both of their local post secondary campuses. These volunteers are on campus Monday to Friday dedicating time to recycling and composting initiatives. Alongside these volunteers are student volunteers who dedicate time to assisting them with carrying out their recycling tasks on campus.

It is an opportunity for people to learn new skills, meet new people and contribute a valuable service to community. In exchange for their hard work, the volunteers are able to access campus resources like, the library, computers, classroom space, sports equipment and athletic facilities.

With support from staff and students at Fleming and Trent, Community Living has developed a very successful recycling program that highlights the abilities in people and encourages people with and without disabilities to work collaboratively toward a healthier environment. Blueboxing volunteers participate in the life of community, build friendships, and are respected on and off campus!
