Recycling in the Student Education Center

Trash and recycling infrastructure in the student education center and library were renovated during the summer of 2023. The new bins moved towards a centralized recycling model with source-separated collection (paper and cardboard separated from the rest of the recycling), following the model and color coding of the New York Department of Sanitation.

The new sturdy and elegant bins have a backboard with custom-made signs that educate the users on what goes in which bin. Read more about this project here.
