CWRU Recycles

Reducing waste is a big deal at CWRU. We're up to a 22% diversion rate, but we can do better. Learn the ins and outs of how to recycle on campus.

The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) and My Green Lab partner with University's like CWRU across the world to achieve greater energy efficiency and cold storage practices with the Freezer Challenge. This is CWRU's first year participating as a campus.

 REScycle, CWRU’s end-of-the-year move-out donation program, is running now through May 31st. REScycle allows undergrads to donate items that they no longer need or want (or can’t fit in their luggage or car!) while keeping good, usable items out of the landfill.
