Contamination

Please do not put any waste items into any recycling bin or exterior recycling container. Just one trash or waste item can contaminate an entire recycling bin or an entire recycling dumpster. Recycling that is contaminated with food, liquids or non-recyclable material will be rejected by the recycling facility and sent to the landfill for disposal.

Composting

Composting is a natural process that is used to convert food and organic waste into rich soil to be returned to the earth. Composting is offered at Loyola Dining locations. Loyola collects about 10,000 lbs of organic material from campus kitchens and cafes each month.
