New Guidelines for Recycling

Effective immediately, we can no longer recycle glass or #3,4,5,6,7 plastics on campus due to new recycling guidelines from our waste hauler. While we like to think recycling is a virtuous, environmental act, the reality is it’s an imperfect process driven by market economics rather than environmental ethos. You can view all the details of the new program by clicking here. Follow the new guidelines, but to really have an environmental impact, stop (or minimize) purchasing single use containers.
