Recycling

Recycling is an easy way for students to make a big difference. Recycling has countless economical and environmental benefits such as saving resources, reducing pollution, and conserving energy. For the past four years, Berry has participated in the Recyclemania competition. As a required "tangible impact" for the Presidents' Climate Commitment, our participation encourages students to take advantage of the recycling facilities available and lessen their impact on the environment.

Berry’s recycling is unique because it is co-mingled, meaning ALL your recyclables can all be dumped into one bin. Our recycle bins are in most of our academic buildings and dormitories located next to doors, bathrooms, and stairwells. Remember: it is important to keep waste out of the recycle bin because contaminated recyclables are not accepted at the recycling plant.
