Smith College Admission Academics Student Life About Smith news Offices



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 on the main floor of their house.

Batteries can be recycled at the Health and Safety Office in Facilities Management and the battery and printer cartridge recycling container in the Campus Center. In addition, recycling bins for alkaline and rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries are located in the bookstore and in the lobby of each residence hall.

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
