MIT Targets Ambitious Recycling Goals
The more MIT recycles materials and reduces the amount of trash we produce, the more the Institute saves financially and contributes to a sustainable environment. In FY 2013, the community recycled nearly 1,300 tons of mixed paper, plastics, bottles and cans; 60 tons of electronic waste; 63 tons of wood and metal harvested from discarded furnishing; and .5 ton of plastic bags.
Greater community involvement and more recycling options are boosting participation. The Department of Facilities works with campus partners such as the Office of Sustainability and the Green Committee to improve MIT’s recycling efforts.
