Recycle Header
on the Pew Campus

In reflection of the University commitment to sustainability, Pew Campus Operations has expanded the recycling program. We have increased the range of items that we are able to recycle and have placed additional containers for public recycling. We also participate in the annual Recyclemania competition!

We have equipped each office with a paper recycling bin, which can accommodate almost any type of paper you would like to recycle! 
***NOTE: Paperclips and staples are OK!***
