Campus RECYCLING TIPS
- The Kletz Market, both coffee shops and all concessions use certified compostable to-go food containers, so please put them into the compost bins located throughout the main areas in the Bultman Student Center.
- Use reusable containers as much as possible, including reusable bottles/mugs, tupperware, eating utensils, etc. Creative Dining has reusable “green-clamshells” containers that you can bring back for a new, clean container.
- Rinse food containers before recycling.
- Leave labels on and discard lids.
- All campus cottages/apartments participate in the City of Holland recycling program managed by the city’s waste collection vendor.
- We offer composting options for our campus cottages. Please submit a work order if you would like a compost container.
- See below for the full list of “Blue Bin” recyclable items. Blue bins can be found in all administrative/academic buildings and residential halls.
