Did you know? The university generates income from white paper recycling. Only clean, white printer/copier paper should be placed into bins marked "White Paper Only." If any non-white paper is mixed into these bins, the entire container is downgraded. The same rule applies for bags of shredded paper. Any non-white paper should be placed in the bins marked for "Mixed Paper" or single stream.

To find out more about recycling at Mason, and a list of everything you can recycle, visit the Recycling and Waste Management website, https://green.gmu.edu/campus-sustainability/waste-minimization-and-recycling/!
