Recycling at CBU is done in partnership with Waste Management. Since the program started in March 2011, CBU has recycled over 50 tons or 100,000 lbs of material.
Collection is commingled (single-stream) and receptacles can be found
in buildings throughout campus. They are typically located at the end
of hallways near exits and stairwells.
Personal recycling from home or
the dorms can be placed in the large green dumpster behind O’Hara Hall, off of
the East Parkway entrance.
Food is the biggest contaminant, so we ask that you please rinse out
those cola cans, yogurt containers, etc. If food enters the recycling
stream, the entire collection for the week goes to the landfill.
