UIS Residence Life practices and maintains a large recycling program throughout the housing buildings. You are encouraged to recycle your aluminum, plastics, paper and glass by using the recycling bins located in designated areas. It is highly recommended to rinse and/or clean your recyclables before placing them in designated bins. Food containers with leftover food product in them are considered to be “contaminated” making it difficult for these items to be recycled. Furthermore, the collection of food and liquid waste in the recycle bins makes collection areas unpleasant to use due to odors, spillage and appearance. You are encouraged to place proper recycle materials in their designated bins.
