IU Northwest's recycling effort relies on a high level of participation and involvement of the entire IU Northwest community. If we are to achieve our goals of recycling and waste reduction, we must all do our fair share.
The program has two separate components:
Physical Plant provides a 14 gallon bright yellow plastic recycling container for every classroom, office, lab, seminar room, auditorium, etc. on campus. A 90 gallon collection toter is located on every floor (usually near an elevator), except in Lindenwood and Sycamore Halls, (Lindenwood and Sycamore will have two per building) for the emptying of the individual plastic recycling containers.
We have 3 green and yellow "Paper Retriever" bins, which are located in prominent, visible areas:
The IUN community participation and involvement is as follows:
Paper suitable for recycling through the "Paper Retriever" Program includes all CLEAN and DRY:
Do NOT include: cardboard, telephone books, plastic, glass, metals or trash.
All plastics, glass and cans should be placed in existing, marked recycling containers which are located in most buildings on the ground floor.
