Where can you recycle?
Compost bins for food and paper products are located in the cafeteria and by the cafe. You can place recyclable material in their appropriate containers on campus. At strategic locations throughout campus, you will find blue recycling containers with slots for paper and with round holes for bottles and cans. Cardboard can be placed next to recycling containers. Orange pails for battery recycling are located in each hallway.
