Where to recycle?

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.
“One of the most important aspects of going green is simply the amount of energy that will be saved,” says Cassandra Lord ’10. “This is not only good for the environment, but it is also something that will be monetarily beneficial in the long run.”
