Now Recyclable at Penn: ALL Plastic, Foil and Wrappers
Following some technical upgrades at the University’s waste and recycling hauler’s facility, Penn recently added several new types of materials to its growing list of recyclables. All clean plastic containers (both numbered and unnumbered), plastic utensils, plastic bags, and plastic wrap are now recyclable and can be disposed into designated glass/plastic/aluminum recycling bins and single stream recycling bins. Additional materials now recyclable that were previously disposed as trash include clean aluminum foil and candy/chip/snack wrappers. Updated recycling signage and posters are available for download in PDF format on the Green Campus Partnership website.
