More Recycling Bins

You may have noticed an increase in the number of BLUE recycling containers in the Academic and Administrative buildings. You might have also noticed the new recycling containers around campus on the grounds. All these containers have a recycling logo and a blue lid.

Additional blue recycling bins have also been placed in the common and/or recreation areas of the buildings. There amount and accesibility of these containers to students have also been increased in all the residence halls.

Watch a video from Waste Management for an explanation on Single Stream Recycling, how the recycling material is handled, and what happens once it leave the College.
