At AUS, we are committed to caring for our environment. As part of this, we have partnered with Bee’ah, the local waste management company, to have a recycling program on campus.
All of AUS is encouraged to recycle. Find out how you can be a part of this important program.
The AUS campus has numerous recycling options.
Please dispose of items according to the particular bin labels. If a bin is not labeled, it is for general waste.
The following items can be recycled and should be placed in the respective recycling bins around campus:
Recycling Tips: Recycled items should be empty of organic waste; otherwise, they cannot be recycled.
There are many different types of plastics. You can currently recycle #1 and #2 plastics on campus. You can find the plastic number with the triangular arrows on the bottom of most plastic bottles and containers. Plastic items that are not #1 or #2 cannot currently be recycled. If you cannot find a number, then place the item in the general waste.
The following items cannot be recycled and should be placed in the general waste bins around campus:
Recycling Tip: If you are unsure about whether an item belongs in the recycling or the general waste bin, it is best to place it in the general waste bin.
