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.
