St. John’s University began its recycling program in 2002 and
for 2008 recycling enhancements are being added that
- Triple the number of recycle stations for every campus building
with new clearly marked recycle containers for Mixed Paper,
Plastic, Metal & Glass.
- Distributing hundreds of recycle containers in the corridors of
the Residential Village, academic & administrative
- Start up of the first team of student workers as Sustainability
- Quantify and report on the volumes of our recycling
Other materials that are currently being recycled on our
campuses include cardboard, scrap metals, plastic containers,
batteries, fluorescent lamps, computer monitors, printer cartages
and some furniture.
The Facilities Services Department has responsibility for
handling all recycled materials for all campuses. The Office of
Facilities Services can be reached by calling ext. 6253.
We look forward to hearing from anyone with comments / questions
regarding this program. To offer helpful suggestions on how to
