Sorting Guide


You can help create a green campus! Use recycling stations to sort your material.


To prevent contamination and subsequent landfill disposal of recyclable and compostable materials, please keep all plastics out of the yellow compost bins and all liquids and food material out of blue and green recycling bins.
