Relabeled Recycling Bins

You may have noticed that RIT has replaced and relabeled all its recycling bins on campus in accordance with RIT’s new Single Stream recycling policy. This means you can place all recyclable items in one bin! The new and improved labels will let you know what is recyclable. In addition to Single Stream recycling, the most significant change is that ALL plastics #1-7 will be accepted!

RIT recently announced that all Dining Services plastic food containers and flatware are recyclable and can be placed in any Single Stream recycling bin. Please make sure all food has been removed before recycling your container!

If you aren’t sure what is recyclable, check the list below:

Paper - Newspaper, Magazines, Paper Books, Junk Mail, Loose Paper, Gable Top Cartons, Corrugated Cardboard

Plastic - All Plastics #1-7, Milk Jugs, Plastic Bottles, Plastic Containers, Plastic Bags, Plastic Cups  (Remove Caps & Lids)

Metal - Empty Aerosol Cans, Tin Containers, Aluminum Cans, Steel Containers  (No Hazardous Materials)

Glass - All colored Glass, Glass Bottles, Glass Jars  (No Broken Glass)
