    Pacific Recycling Gets a New Image

    Apr 8, 2011

    Photo of recycle bins on campus. Over the course of the next few months you may notice the GREEN recycling totes being replaced with GREY YELLOW-TOP totes. To avoid confusion as to what types of materials can be recycled; Pacific uses a system of single stream recycling where all appropriate material can be placed in the same bin.

    The totes are picked up on Tuesdays by Allied Waste and taken to the local recycling facility to be sorted and processed. Allied waste has assured us that the old green totes will be broken down and recycled. Cardboard-only dumpsters are also placed throughout campus and all green waste is recycled. Recycling bins on campus can be found in these locations.
