WasteBinsFall2013_250Q:  What's new, shiny and now in every academic building and residence hall?

A:  The new metal food waste + compostables, recycling and trash bins. This means each building has at least one food waste + compostables bin inside in a public area. The bins replace the ugly, old, gray bins.  Also new and improved are SU's compost and recycling web pages. You can watch a video of what goes in the three bins or see a video of what happens to your food waste, recycling and trash. Learn how to recycle batteries, styrene foam and toner cartridges on campus. Or print a food waste/recycling/ trash flyer to post above the bins in a break room.
