New single-stream bins are in the library

Apr 12, 2013 10:30 AM

Seventy new single-stream trash and recycling containers have been installed in Thomas Cooper Library.

The containers — with one side marked "Recycle" for disposal of items that can be recycled, the other side marked "Landfill" for trash — are part of a pilot project to see if containers that offer one-stop disposal can be more effective at keeping recyclables out of landfills.

The new containers accept:

  • Mixed paper, plastic and aluminum in the "Recycle" side
  • Other items that cannot be recycled in the "Landfill" side

The project is being spearheaded by the USC Department of Facilities.
