Rockefeller University's commitment to recycling has continued to grow over the past several years. Recycling protects the earth's natural resources, uses less energy and saves landfill space. It is with these facts in mind that the university has made it easier to recycle on campus by adding more recycling bins as well as broadening the types of items that are collected for recycling. Students and employees are even encouraged to bring recyclable materials from home if they lack access to proper recycling centers.
