In order to reduce the amount of waste that it discards, and to comply with local and state regulations, Smith has implemented a comprehensive campuswide recycling program. While at Smith, students are expected to participate in this program.

Recycling containers for paper, bottles, cans and cardboard are located on the main floor or basement of each house and throughout the academic buildings. In addition, each student room has been provided with a blue recycling bin. Students are responsible for emptying this bin into the larger barrels at the recycling site for their house.

CFL bulbs, small electronics, ink cartridges, and batteries can be recycled at the electronics recycling center, located on the lower level of the Campus Center.

Detailed information about what to recycle is posted at the central recycling site in your house. For more information, go to the Smith recycling site at
