Campus Recycling Program Continues to Grow

MIT’s recycling program relies on pickup, sorting, and handling by a dedicated crew. Campus recycling rates improves every year. MIT’s campus-wide goal, in partnership with the City of Cambridge, was to boost the recycling rate to 40% by 2005. MIT reached that rate and in 2013 had a recycling rate of 49%.

The Recycling Program staff work with administrative and student groups, including the Office of Sustainability, to increase the amount of recycled goods and the types of materials that can be recycled. Efforts focus on recycling food waste, the largest campus garbage producer, as well as landscape waste, demolition materials, and computer parts.
