Dining Services works with ReThink Waste on our recycling efforts. We recycle aluminum, grease, office paper, toner cartridges, newspaper, plastic, and corrugated cardboard.  A collection point for single-use plastic bags is available in the Heilman Dining Center lobby.

We render waste meat by-products and spent cooking oils that could otherwise lead to environmental contamination. One hundred percent of the used frying oil is recycled into high-energy fat used in animal feeds, or in biofuel replacement for traditional fossil fuels in industry.
