Recycling Bin Label Changes

A recycling bin and a trash bin with new labelsIf your office area is in the residence halls, you may have noticed an update to recycling bins over winter break! This is Phase 2 in University Housing’s transition to single stream recycling, and labels will continue to be updated into the spring semester. As a reminder, all recyclables (paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, cans) can now be collected in the same blue recycling bins.

The switch to single-stream recycling aims to increase efficiency and ease of recycling for users after many Housing operational changes and external service changes over the past few years. We hope this transition will increase our campus recycling success rate and encourage better sustainability practices among residents. Check out more details and contact with any questions.
