All About Recycling

Not all buildings on campus have the same type of recycling systems, so it's important to be informed about where different types of waste go in each building so campus recycling is as efficient as possible.

Single Stream Recycling- a singular collection of all papers, plastics and glass recyclables that will be sorted after pick-up

Multi Stream Recycling-sorted bins for different materials

Recyclable materials:

*all things to be placed in a recycling bin must be clean and free of any food or oil residue

  • Aluminum cans and foil
  • Tin cans
  • Cardboard
  • Magazines and Newspaper
  • Paper
  • Cardboard Juice and Dairy Containers
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Plastic bottles, jars and jugs

Don't Recycle:

  • Food waste
  • Receipt paper
  • Shredded papers
  • Plastic bags

A single piece of non-recyclable material can contaminate a whole collection of recyclables. Please make sure to dispose of waste in the correct locations, even if it means taking an extra few steps to find a recycling bin or trashcan, and encourage those around you to do the same!
