How to Participate in our Recycling Program SUNY Brockport

Place all recyclable materials in your blue recycling bin.  If you anticipate a larger volume of materials to be recycled, please contact the Facilities Service Center at ext. 2408 to make arrangements to have large tote bins delivered to your area.

The following products should be recycled:

  • Computer paper
  • Books
  • Junk mail
  • Cardboard (both compressed and corrugated)
  • Glass (clear and colored)
  • Metal and Plastic Containers

You do not need to remove covers, paper clips, or staples when recycling.


  • Use double-sided printing and copying
  • Use email instead of paper mail
  • Remove your name from junk mailing lists by contacting the sender


  • Use washable dishware, mugs, glasses, and utensils instead of disposable ones
  • Use reusable inter-office envelopes for campus mail.

Use Recycled Products

  • Using products made from recycled materials improves the markets for our recyclables
  • Check the product labels to see if the product contains recycled materials
  • Contact the College’s Purchasing Department to assist you in identifying sources of recycled products.
