SEAS Recycling Options

Recycling Center

The recycling center was put forth in 2012 to bring awareness to the SEAS community about the alternative purposes for our waste. You can learn more about the grand opening here. Since its creation, the recycling center has successfully diverted thousands of pounds of waste from landfills. Our current recycling rate is 27.5 percent. By 2015, SEAS hopes to raise the community’s recycling rate to 45 percent. To achieve this goal, the SEAS community must be more conscientious when disposing of plastics and mixed paper products, which make up most of our waste stream. From these actions, we hope that those within the school will be inspired to continue these sustainable practices wherever they go.
