Mixed Recycling

 

Massasoit practices Mixed Recycling, also known as Single Stream Recycling. This means that all recyclable items — paper, plastic, metal, glass — go into one container. But, due to recycling market changes, as of 2018 plastic recyclables are limited to #1, #2, and #5 only. Be sure to look for the blue containers around campus to toss your recyclables.

Our goal is to achieve a recycling rate of 40% by the end of fiscal year 2020, and we need your help!

For more information on how to recycle properly, please visit our recycling hauler, Waste Management’s Recycleoftenrecycleright webpage.
