Recycling Room at the School of Engineering and Applied Science

To accommodate the growing recycling needs of the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), the SEAS Green Team redesigned an existing trash room in the Towne Building with the assistance of a Green Fund grant.  Creating a space for recycling collection out of an area already designated for waste stream collection would send a strong signal of SEAS’ commitment to sustainability and be aligned with University’s Climate Action Plan goals.   The SEAS Recycling Center provides convenient access to the University’s single-stream recycling system as well as collections for non-traditional items, such as CFLs, ink and toner cartridges, electronic waste, pens and markers, and batteries.
