Thank you to all who participated in our 6-month TerraCycle project. Due to the popularity of this program, we will continue to facilitate the collection and reuse of hard-to-recycle items with a TerraCycle All-in-One Zero Waste Box located in the Lobby/Circulation area. Use this box to recycle any waste stream including but not limited to:
