Recycling @ MUN

“The sustainability declaration commits Memorial to minimizing its adverse environmental impact while supporting the realistic needs of those who work and study here.”
- Dr. Christopher Loomis (sustainability declaration signing event, Oct. 6, 2009)



In keeping with the mandate of the Memorial University of Newfoundland Sustainability Declaration, MUN makes every effort to reduce the impact of waste created on our campus.

Below you'll find links to programs developed to address the material streams generated on the St. John's campus.  Further research is currently being conducted to identify additional waste diversion opportunities and energy efficiencies. For more information contact
