Single Stream Recyling at UNH in 2013
The Facilities Division along with departmental representatives from the Sustainability Institute, Housing, Residential Life, Dining Services and our business partner, Waste Management will be implementing single stream recycling campus wide effective Monday, January 21, 2013. Some campus buildings have been in a trial single stream recycling program since August 15, 2011. The recycling rate has increased for those buildings participating in the trial.
Single stream recycling allows plastics, aluminum, cardboard and paper to be co-mingled for collection and removal from campus. Sorting will take place off site. The goal is to make recycling so easy everyone will participate! Single stream recycling has proven to be very successful in other municipalities and educational institutions.
