Aluminum Can, Glass, Paper and Plastic Recycling:
There are blue recycling bins in all of the traditional residence halls. For Conrad,
Moreland, Thomas Branch and the Freshmen Village – there is one bin per each RA.
In Mary Branch, there is one bin per each floor on each side. These bins can hold
paper, aluminum cans, glass, cardboard food boxes and plastic containers. The Housekeeping
staff clears out these bins. In Andrews Hall, there is one large bin in each garbage
disposal and recycling room, as well as a recycling station on each floor of the
E-waste Recycling Program:
The first component of the e-waste recycling program involves batteries and ink
cartridges. Receptacles have been placed in the center of each of your floors in
Moreland, Conrad, Mary Branch, and Thomas Branch, and in the quiet study rooms in
the Freshmen Village, where you can place your used ink cartridges and batteries.
To find your local receptacle, please ask your RA. The receptacles
are clearly marked. Every week Residence Life and Housing will collect your spent
ink cartridges and batteries from these receptacles and transport them for recycling.
The second component of the e-waste program involves all other forms of electronic
waste. Whenever you have televisions, computer monitors, Fluorescent light bulbs
(CFLs), computers systems (hard drive, CPU), computer accessories (cables, wires,
keyboards, mice, speakers, etc.), printers, scanners & copiers, telephones &
cell phones, fax machines, VCRs & camcorders, stereos, and microwaves that you
no longer use, or which do not work and are beyond repair, please inform your RA.
Your RA will inform Residence Life and Housing and we will pick up your e-waste
item and ensure it is sent for recycling to a local non-governmental organization.
