General University Reference Utility
To state the University's commitment toward sustainability and environmental resource conservation by establishing a Recycling/Reuse Policy.
It is the policy of the University that all Faculty, Staff, Students and visitors comply with the applicable federal/state/local laws, as well as this policy, and participate in the Recycling Program by separating recyclables and placing them in the appropriate labeled receptacles, and following the regulations set forth below.
- general reduction of waste generation and separation from the waste stream of specified materials for later collection and reuse for the purpose of demonstrating sustainable practices while protecting the environment and reducing the amount of solid waste deposited to landfills by the University.
- those materials designated by the Office of Physical Plant to be separated from the waste stream for collection and processing in a manner that these materials can later be returned to the marketplace as a useful product.
The following are the objectives of the program:
Separated recyclables, once deposited in official University containers, remain the property of the University. Therefore, scavenging is considered theft and is prohibited and punishable in accordance with established University policies and/or applicable laws.
Dumping, by individuals or organizations, of waste not generated as a result of official University activities conducted on University property is prohibited in accordance with established University policies and/or applicable laws.
