This is a Tufts central waste station, where you would bring your recyclable materials and trash. Each central waste station has a recycling bin and a landfill bin. They should always be together!
The recycling bin should always have a blue UFO-shaped recycling lid. If you see a recycling bin without a lid, please submit a work order to Facilities Services so the lid can be replaced as soon as possible.
Tufts Recycling Basics:
Mixed recycling means we have single-stream recycling. All recyclable items should be placed in the mixed recycling bin: paper, cardboard, hard plastic, metal, and glass containers.
Plastic items: Make sure you are recycling rigid plastic items like plastic containers. DO NOT recycle filmy plastics. All soft plastics should go in the trash bin or a Trex specialty recycling bin.
Paper/cardboard items: If the item is greasy, put it in the compost or trash bin.
Do not put any food or liquids in the recycling bin. Make sure all containers are free of food waste before recycling and that all bottles are empty.
