Recycling in the Dorms

Just a reminder that there are signs above, near, or on the recycling and trash bins that say what is supposed to go in each bin. If you are unsure of where something should go, PLEASE READ THE SIGNS.

Or you can look on the Mount Holyoke website.

This link has specifics on Residence Hall Recycling: https://www.mtholyoke.edu/envstewardship/recycling/residence-halls

And this link has general information about recycling and waste reduction at MHC: https://www.mtholyoke.edu/envstewardship/recycling

Please do your part to help the environment and remind others to do their part too!

A specific reminder, pizza boxes CANNOT be recycled unfortunately. So they need to go in the trash bins. Thank you!

And to all the recent new followers: Hi! Whenever you go free binning, be sure to take pictures and submit them to mohofreebinning.tumblr.com/submit so that other people can see the amazing outfits that can be found there! Happy Free Binning!

"FACT: The best outfits come from the free bin."

It’s true. All the best outfits do come from the free bins.

Our Eco Reps made this awesome video about what you can do on campus to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Check it out.

Since it’s the beginning of the year the free bins are probably pretty low on great outfits, but that doesn’t mean you can’t donate to it. Before you donate or while you search for outfits take pictures of items and submit them at mohofreebinning.tumblr.com/submit.

(Gifs by Lam Thuy Vo/NPR)

An interesting set of gifs and text that describe the process of recycling glass bottles. 
Remember to always recycle glass (and anything else that will recycle of course) whenever possible. They can be made into new things!
