Recycling & Resource Management

New Recycling Procedures:

The University has been updating the standardized recycling/waste signage throughout the campus.  In order to succeed in maintaining an overall quality program, we need everyone to fully participate and adhere to the new recycling procedures.

Recently, the recycling industry has experienced elevated levels of non recyclable materials.  Additionally, the marketplace has instituted stricter quality control measures to clean up our recylables.  Moving forward,  Stony Brook University will no longer be recycling glass, nor plastics #3 - #7, and soiled cardboard (greasy pizza boxes).
