Hello Saluki Green Action Team!

 Did you know: There are important campus recycling updates? From now on, the only plastics that you should put in the Mixed Recycling bins on campus are bottles labeled #1 or #2. 

Commonly used items with a "neck" CAN go in the recycling bin. That includes containers that typically contain products such as: 

  • Water/soda. 
  • Shampoo. 
  • Laundry detergent. 
  • Milk. 


Take Action:  Respond to the changing landscape of recycling by staying informed about what local facilities are currently accepting.   


Check out our updated recycling guidelines summarized by University Communications and Marketing.
