How do I know my recycling gets recycled?
Recycling is collected in clear bags, while trash is collected in dark bags. Clear and dark bags are transported together to a waste facility where they are sorted and handled appropriately.
What if my recycling is being put in a dark trash bag?
Fix it! Contact the Custodial Service Manager (x1453 or
RJKoch@ship.edu) to get this issue resolved.
What if there is trash in the recycling bin?
Up to 25% of trash contamination is tolerated in each recycling container. Exceeding that amount results in the recyclables being thrown away.
What if SU doesn't recycle something that I want recycled?
Look on-line and find out where you can take your item to be recycled. There are several recycling facilities surrounding SU, including Big Spring Recycling Depot and the New Hope Recycling Center. See
http://shipcoalition.org for more details.
Where can I go to find more information?
