Recycling Facilities
 
There is a central recycling location in each academic building where there are toters for various materials. Please collect your own recyclables and bring them to the toters periodically. Some departments find it convenient to assign a work-study student to this task. Occasionally a cleaning person will agree to empty recycling containers, but this is not generally their responsibility.
 
Where are the toters?
What can I recycle?
