The goal of the UIC Recycling Program, empowered by the Illinois Solid Waste Management Act is to minimize waste by encouraging the conservation of resources. Our priorities, as a campus, are to:
- Reduce the waste we produce by choosing materials wisely
- Reuse what we have already by considering new roles for unwanted material
- Recycle what must be thrown away, and minimize material bound for landfill
The Recycling Program, coordinated by the Office of Sustainability, collaborates with the Student Centers, Athletic Facilities, Campus Housing, and the Transportation Department to increase opportunities to recycle while raising awareness of environmental issues on campus.
