Recycling program expands its efforts on campus

April 18, 2016

Every year, the University of New Mexico recycles over one thousand tons of material. According to Sustainability Manager Mary Clark, that makes UNM the second largest recycling facility statewide.

“We generally receive very positive feedback from the UNM community,” Recycling Supervisor Scott George said. “We are continually making changes to improve our effectiveness and efficiency.”

UNM recycles glass, plastic, paper, cardboard, metal, E-waste, batteries, toner cartridges, light bulbs and wood pallets, George said. Recycle bins are located across campus, indoors and outdoors, and are emptied Monday through Friday.

He said the group will complete a refurbishing project on all outdoor recycling bins and add new indoor recycling bins later this semester.
