Recycling Directory Debut

| | Comments (0)

Most people know that materials like plastic bottles, paper, cardboard, and aluminum cans are all recyclable. Did you know, though, that many more everyday items can be recycled?

Launched in January 2011, the University of Chicago’s new Recycling Directory compiles campus and other local recycling resources in order to assist the University of Chicago community to recycle as many every day items as possible. The items included range from cosmetics and eyeglasses to appliances and batteries. Each item in the directory contains a brief description about the importance of recycling the item, followed by options for recycling on campus (if available) as well as in the city of Chicago.

Please direct any suggestions for additional items or updates to the directory to Colleen.
