Recycling is a great way to help the environment, and Facilities Management is greatly interested in assisting, but we can not do it alone. We must have the cooperation of students, faculty, and staff. The concept is simple: recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources.
In March of 2012 we invited representatives from Clean Green Solutions and Rochester Midland Corporation to train our custodians on green cleaning. They all successfully completed training and testing in "Rochester Midland's Certified Green Housekeeping Program" which is a recognized LEED program. So now all of our custodians are registered LEED certified in green cleaning! Click here to see the certificate.

We have seen much success since the inception of the Recycling Program on October 10, 1991. We are constantly working to expand this program to make it as effective as possible. Currently we recycle the following items cans, plastic & glass bottles, Paper & Co-mingled Containers (tin food cans from the Dining Commons & non-redeemable plastic bottles), batteries, glass, cell phones, computer/electronic equipment, fluorescent tubes (light bulbs), inkjet & laserjet ink cartridges, waste oil, old college furniture, and mattresses.
