Now all recyclables can be placed in the same bin!
Our recycling program is single-stream — one bin fits all!
This includes all campus recycling bins.
- Small desk-side blue bin
- Waste station bins with blue slotted lid
- Large blue bins for special events
Look for more waste stations appearing in the campus in the future.
Almost all waste is recyclable through this program!
All single-sort recycling goes to Ecomaine's state of the art sorting facility in Portland. Visit www.ecomaine.org for more infomation.
