Get ready for some exciting news—IUP is getting brand-new recycling bins! The new bins will be appearing in the entrances of all academic buildings with the start of the Spring 2011 semester.
Four blue containers, side by side, with unique lids will be available to recycle:
Any plastic product that can be recycled will have a recycling symbol (three arrows in the shape of a triangle) on it somewhere, usually on the bottom. Inside the symbol will be a number from 1 to 7. The number indicates the type of plastic the container is created from. The Indiana County Recycling Center is set up to accept plastics #1 and #2, and so this is what we can recycle at IUP.
Please do not contaminate the bins with other garbage, as this may prevent all other materials in the bin from being recycled.
With the old cardboard bin system, the following amount was recycled from August 2009 through August 2010:
Let’s see if we can make a new record for IUP! With our powers combined . . . we can make a difference!
