DPPEA RECYCLING

Aluminum Cans, plastic bottles, newspapers and glass bottles and jars
Recycling barrels for aluminum cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles and jars are located in front of the men’s room. Please keep all trash and other contaminants out of the aluminum, plastic and glass containers.

Newspapers/Magazines
A bin for recycling newspapers and magazines is located next to the other recycling barrels outside the men's room.

Corrugated Cardboard
Cardboard should be broken down and placed in the hall for the night cleaning staff to take. Please remove any packing materials.

Food Scraps
You may compost certain food scraps by putting them in one of the two bins under the table beside the refrigerator in the small kitchen area. A sign in the kitchen indicates what you can and can’t put in the bins. The bins are emptied into the vermicomposting bin in the loading dock.

Hardback Books
Please bring all hardback books to one of the DENR Sustainability Team's book exchange, held twice a year; once at 2728 Capital and once at the Archdale Bldg.

White Office Paper
There are several bins for white office paper. A sign on the barrell indicates what can and can't be put in the barrell. It’s better to remove staples and paperclips. Yellow sticky notes, tape, gummed labels or glue bindings attached to the paper are NOT acceptable. The adhesive on labels does not dissolve in the recycling process, and it "gums up the works" of the machinery.

Batteries
Julie Woosley has battery recycling in her office on a side table.

Phone Books
An annual telephone book drive is held in the spring at 2728 Capital.

If you have additional questions, Rachel Eckert is DPPEA’s recycling monitor. Her number is 5-6505.
