Recycling at Redlands

Recycling is a large part of environmental sustainability

At Redlands, recycling is a way of life.

You are encouraged to recycle paper, glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard and other solid waste. You also have opportunities to dispose of electronic waste, including used light bulbs, computers, cell phones, batteries and heavy metals.

A grass recycling program also is in place, and paint waste reduction and food and water reduction efforts also are encouraged campus-wide.
