HOW DO I RECYCLE AT CULTURAL HOUSES, 

FRATERNITIES, AND TOWNHOUSES?

Trinity staff collect the trash and recycling from most buildings on Vernon Street. There are two options for collection:

  • Collect recycling in clear plastic bags and leave these bags next to your trash dumpster. 

  • Collect recycling in a large covered blue bin and leave the bin next to your trash dumpster. Make sure the bin is clearly labeled recycling. 

​Notify the Facilities department when you begin recycling by calling x2444 and providing your address. For questions, clear bags, or bin requests email Sustainability@trincoll.edu.


WHERE CAN I BRING HARD TO RECYCLE ITEMS?

  • Plastic bags, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), alkaline batteries, and small electronics waste: Bring to the collection centers on the first floor of Mather or basement of Jacobs Life Sciences. 
  • Ink toner cartridges: Bring these back to the store where you bought them or to the Community Service Office in the basement of Mather.
