In Residence Halls
If you live in a residence hall, then you can recycle all of the above items in your residence hall.
Where to recycle?
You will find the nearest recycling station in one of the following locations on your floor: Trash Room, Lounge, Restroom, or Kitchen.
How to recycle?
- Place only the proper materials in the correct bin for each material (see posters at recycling stations). Make sure cans and bottles are empty.
- Fold down corrugated cardboard flat, so they can be neatly stacked. Corrugated cardboard and newspapers can be laid on the floor, in separate stacks, next to the bins.
