A: There are countless reasons to recycle, like reducing landfill-caused pollution, the trash-loops in the oceans, and the energy needs of the packaging industry. For the college, recycling disposal costs 3-4 times less than waste disposal. Money saved here can be better spent elsewhere.
A: Single stream recycling is a system that allows customers to mix a variety of recyclable items such as paper, plastic, and glass all in one bin. At the recycling plant, mechanized devices sort the materials so that you don’t have to. A single stream recycling program is currently in place at COW; as long as you put your recyclables into a recycling container you do not have to sort them (Note: recyclables placed in trash containers will NOT be recycled. In addition, please DO NOT put any trash into a designated recycling container).
A: Blue bins (the containers are a variety of shapes and sizes) marked with the recycling emblem are located throughout interior spaces on campus. Recycling receptacles are also located in exterior spaces throughout campus for your convenience--just look for the blue lids! In addition, feel free to toss your recyclables into the recycling dumpsters marked by a yellow stripe and recycling stickers. Ask your area’s custodian for additional bins where necessary.
A: Here is a list of acceptable and unacceptable materials.
