Library Services uses TerraCycle's collection programs to recycle a variety of products which cannot be municipally recycled. Our TerraCycle programs are free to the college, and some of them allow us to earn points we redeem to support our k-cup recycling program. See below for a full list of our TerraCycle recycling programs!
We also recycle K-cups through Keurig's K-Cycle program. This program accepts K-cups only, and does not accept other coffee related materials like creamer cups or disposable coffee cups. Due to the organic nature of K-cups, small, frequent deliveries are preferable over large, less frequent deliveries (K-cups can become moldy).
FLC recycling services are available Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm in office 206, opposite the staircase on the second floor. Stop by and drop off your recyclables in our marked boxes!
The RB healthcare program is scheduled to end on October 1! Please bring healthcare product recycling to FLC 206 before October 1!
PLEASE NOTE: This program does NOT accept any prescription bottles for recycling.
Please ensure all excess product liquids, such as medicines and topicals, have been removed and packaging is dry.
Please deliver Swiffer refills in bags to limit dust and dirt in the recycling area. Please allow wet refills to dry before delivering.
Please do not include correction materials (including Wite-Out® Brand) and free ink markers. Ensure all containers are empty of product.
Please do not include any other type of plastic packaging.
Cups do not have to be perfectly clean, but please rinse them to keep our office space free of pests and odors.
This program only accepts rigid plastic. Please do not include soft plastics like bags or Styrofoam.
Containers do not have to be perfectly clean, but please rinse them to keep our office space free of pests and odors.
Please do not include electric toothbrushes, battery toothbrushes, and/or their parts.
Flexible plastic packaging includes (and is not limited to) bags, pouches, liners, and wraps. This program only accepts flexible packaging produced by Kroger®. Packaging produced by Kroger® will have the following fine print on the back of the package:
Packaging does not have to be perfectly clean, but please make sure it is empty and food residue is shaken or rinsed out to keep our office space free of pests and odors.
Please note: Only non-electric blades, razors, and plastic packaging are accepted.
Remember to follow all requirements for these recycling locations, including residency restrictions, cleaning requirements, and accepted materials limitations. Wish-cycling contaminates recycling streams, turning batches of recyclable materials into waste, and discouraging municipalities from continuing their recycling programs.
Are you alumni or a commuter student? You are welcome to save any materials listed in our TerraCycle program to drop off when you visit campus! Or, you can make a Terracycle account and pick your own material types to recycle at home by visiting terracycle.com/en-US/brigades. Because K-cups tend to mold, please don't save them to drop off during campus visits. However, you can purchase your own K-cup recycling bins at keurigkcycle.com/. You can also eliminate K-cup waste at the source by transitioning to a French press or pour-over coffee brewing system.
Do you know about additional local recycling resources that aren't listed in our Community Resources section, or have some of our Community Resources ceased? Please let Angela know so she can keep our resources list up to date!
