When it comes to recycling at St. Bonaventure, don’t be afraid to mix it up! Zero-Sort recycling is making it easier than ever. With Zero-Sort, just toss all of your recyclables into one bin. You’ll increase recycling and reduce trash. Casella Waste Systems, which handles the university’s contract for garbage and recycling, takes care of the sorting at its state-of-the-art facilities. (Watch a video about the sorting process.)
That means you can combine recyclables such as cardboard, office paper and aluminum cans all in one designated recycling bin.
Here is a list of Zero-Sort recyclables
(all materials should be free of food items)
› Clean boxboard (shoe boxes/cereal boxes)
› Office paper (white/colored)
› Magazines, newspapers, glossy inserts
› Office paper, junk mail, envelopes
› Aluminum cans
› Tin cans
› Glass bottles and jars
› Plastic bottles #1 through #7
› Computers and printers purchased by the university should be taken to Central Receiving for proper disposal.
› Cell phones and printer cartridges can be dropped off in the Thomas Merton Center to Sr. Suzanne Kush; a supplier provides a small reimbursement that is used to support the campus recycling program.
