Recycling

Aligned with our Institutional value for sustainability, SCF participates in numerous waste reduction efforts.  Our recycling program is comprised of two parts;  consumer and commercial recycling.  

Consumer Recycling

SCF began using single stream recycling in 2012 for recyclable consumer waste.    Single stream recycling is a method of recycling that simplifies the process for consumers by allowing commingling of all recyclable material into a single receptacle.  This method of recycling has shown to significantly increase consumer participation, resulting in an increased amount of recycled material.  SCF continues to  expanded single stream receptacles into common areas, classrooms and offices.  All recycling receptacles on campus are part of the single stream program.   Below is a list of what is permitted in  in the single stream receptacles. 

For more information on the process of single stream recycling visit Waste Management's Recycling Page.
