Recycling Bin Label Changes

If your office area is in the residence halls, you may have noticed an update to recycling bins over winter break. This is phase 2 in University Housing’s transition to single stream recycling, and labels will continue to be updated into the spring semester. As a reminder, all recyclables (paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, cans) can now be collected in the same blue recycling bins.
