Green Tip

Recycling your beverage containers on campus
helps your Campus Food Bank

For every beverage container you recycle on campus, a donation is made to the Campus Food Bank. It's simple – just empty the container, remove the cap and straw, and remember not to crush the container.

In every building, on every floor, there are beige recycling bins with brown lids specifically for beverage container recycling. These bins are usually located next to a garbage can.

Or, you can bring them to the University Centre (UC) where there are new blue recycling units with a specific slot marked for beverage containers.

Ever Green Recycling ( picks up the beverage containers for sorting and processing. Funds collected through recycling are divided between Ever Green Recycling and Facilities Management which in turn makes a donation to the Campus Food Bank.
