RIT Recycling

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Recycling Program exists to actively promote proper materials management on campus through reuse, recycling, waste minimization, and other environmentally responsible processes. The program strives to develop solutions, initiatives, and educational programs that encourage sustainable behavior throughout the university in order to facilitate change in our global community.

Mixed Recycling
