Desk-side Recycling Pilot
Emma Eccles Jones Education Building is currently participating in a pilot program where the Facilities Maintenance crew collects recyclables at each desk and collects waste from centrally located trash bins. Print a label to remind you what goes in the bin.
In the bin:
- Paper (clean white and colored paper, junk mail, newspapers, post-its)
- Metal cans
- Plastics 1-7 (clean drink bottles, yogurt cups, clam shell containers, some drink lids)
Not in the bin:
- Waxed cups
- Food wrappers
- Plastic bags
- Greasy or wet paper or cardboard
