Desk Side Recycling Program

As a part of Yale's commitment to sustainability, Yale Recycling is instituting a new desk side recycling program.  The goal is to raise the University's recycling rate from 19% to 40%.   Over the next several months faculty and staff who work at desks will receive new desk side bins for trash and for Mixed Paper recycling.   Custodians will empty both bins twice per week.  The expansion of custodial service to include desk side collection of Mixed Paper has increased recycling rates in test buildings.

To learn more about this program, and when it will be coming to your building, please contact Recycling at or by calling 432-6852.
