Toto Hand Dryers
You may have noticed some changes in the restrooms. We’ve installed new Toto hand dryers to reduce waste and energy associated with paper towel use. The first dryers were installed in the George Sherman Union as part of the Green Restaurant Association’s certification program. Small changes make a big difference. These machines are the quietest and quickest dryers on the market. Their low wattage makes them the most environmentally, economically, and energy conscious choice for Boston University.
