Recycling on Campus is as easy as 1, 2, 3...4, 5, 6, 7.
Recycling is one of the easiest ways to reduce waste and resource depletion. And living in the residence halls offers you an opportunity to help UMM in its mission to be an environmentally friendly University. In the recycling centers in the residence halls, you can recycle various items. Once you deposit these items into the bins, the maintenance staff empties the bins and an outside contractor transports the recyclables to the Bay Area Transfer Station. There are recycling containers in every building for paper, cans/bottles and trash.
Students living in the residence halls can recycle the following items in the Recycling Centers located in the building:
- Glass jars - food jars. Rinsed & labels removed.
- #1-7 Plastics - Look for the triangle.
- Tin/Aluminum Cans - rinsed and labels removed
- Cardboard/boxboard - flattened (includes cereal boxes, pizza boxes (without pizza, some grease stains are fine), paper egg cartons, and cardboard boxes
- Mixed paper - - Office/printer paper and mail related paper (remove plastic envelope windows)
