Hello from Your Green Team,
With all this talk about proper sorting, it is good to know what is appropriate to go in the landfill bin in addition to what can go into the different recycling containers located on campus.
There are actually fewer items than you think that are appropriate for the landfill bin.
Granola bar wrappers
Condiment packages or wrappers
Non-stretchy plastic bags or wrappers
Single-use hot cups
Single-use soda cups
Styrofoam take out or drink container
Made to order sandwich wrappers
When possible, try to reduce your consumption of these items.
If you have any questions, please contact
or tweet questions to
This is what we do, and this is how we do it,
Your Green Team
