(note: upon receiving the grant we will want to include descriptions of the recycling bins-color, shape, size, etc. familiarize the information below)

It is the responsibility of individuals to place all recyclable materials in the correct bins placed around campus. It is also important to avoid contamination of bins with incorrect materials or trash. For example, office paper placed in a co-mingled bin contaminate it, and can result in that bag being sent to the landfill. Similarly, newspaper placed in an office paper bin can render it trash. Please pay attention to the sign on a bin before placing items in it.

Office paper should have staples and tape removed, envelopes should have the windows removed, and glossy paper and magazines cannot be recycled. Colored and white office paper are both acceptable.

Corrugated Cardboard boxes should be flattened before being placed in cardboard dumpsters so they will fit into the compactor.

Glass bottles, aluminum cans, and plastics #1 and #2 should be washed out if they are very dirty but otherwise can be placed directly in the blue comingle bins as is.

There are a number of locations on campus to recycle the items listed in the previous section:
