Center Recycles Materials to Reduce Waste

Wondering what to do with your empty aluminum cans, used paper and rinsed glass items? Recycle them.

Recycle bins are available to the University community in all buildings on campus. These bins help the Recycling Center with its goal to reduce solid waste quantities as much as possible.

The University began its recycling program in October 2001 and purchased a cardboard baler to use in the Center. The University recycles 1,000 pounds of cardboard each day with the baler. Cardboard material bins are located outside of most buildings.

Truman’s Recycling Center is located in Building No. 4 in the Dulaney/Baldwin Complex at the south end of campus.

Students are encouraged to volunteer to assist the Recycling Center at the center or in the residence halls.

In addition, Student Senate will be providing recycling bins to all first-year students living in the residence halls to promote recycling as an integrated daily activity. The students will be able to keep them when the move out of the residence halls.
