To provide for a College Recycling Program.
New York Medical College is enhancing its recycling program to comply with the Westchester County Recycling Law. To simplify the recycling efforts at the College we will be employing Single Steam recycling. Single Stream Recycling is a technology that allows participants to place all of their recyclables such as fiber (newspaper, office paper and cardboard) and non-fiber (plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars, steel and aluminum cans) into a single container for subsequent collection, processing and remarketing. There is no sorting of materials into separate bins.
Under this new plan, all recyclables will be collected from set locations such as blue recycling containers besides desks, in copy rooms, hallways, office kitchens or lounge areas. These items are collected throughout the building by Housekeeping Staff and brought to the outside recycling dumpsters for pickup.
Types of Recyclable Materials:
|Acceptable Materials||Unacceptable Materials|
|Flattened Cardboard||Food Waste|
|Office Paper||Paper Towels and Cups|
|Junk Mail||Food Wrappers|
|Phone Books||Detergent, Solvent, or Chemical Containers|
|Brown paper Bags||Pottery|
|Plastic Bottles||Lab Glass|
|Glass Bottles and Jars||Light Bulbs|
|Aluminum Cans||Plastic Bags|
|Aluminum Foil and Pie Tins||Wood|
|Steel Cans and Empty Aerosol Cans||Toner Cartridges|
Responsibilities: All parties at the College have a role in the Recycling process, as follows:
