Reducing the Amount of Campus Waste
Northeastern University is committed to responsible and sustainable materials management. Practices are focused on reducing, reusing, and recycling a high percentage of materials used in our residence halls, dining areas, classrooms, laboratories, offices, and in construction projects. The Materials & Recycling Department is responsible for collecting and managing the recyclable and waste materials generated at all of the university’s facilities. We are always searching for new ways to make improvements that decrease consumption, reuse where possible, and increase the amount of material recycled through innovation, and processes.
