Recycling & Sustainability Services
Recycling at ESF – each member of the campus community is responsible for following New York State and Onondaga County recycling policies and guidelines.
The College participates in single-stream recycling, a system in which all recyclables, including newspaper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, junk mail, etc., are placed in a single bin for recycling. These recyclables are collected by a single truck and taken to a Materials Recovery Facility to be sorted into various commodity streams for sale to markets, where it is processed into feedstock which can be used in the manufacture of new products.
On each floor of our campus buildings there are recycling containers. While the College participates in single-stream recycling, ESF continues to maintain separate containers for paper for ease of removal.
If you have questions regarding recycling on campus, please contact the Physical Plant & Facilities main office at ext. 6588.
