Recycling & Waste Reduction
The University at Albany disposes of approximately 2110 tons of garbage per year. Annually we recycled 320 tons of mixed paper, 10 tons of comingled product (glass, plastic, tin), 33 tons of scrap metal, 1.5 tons of tires, 1.75 tons of motor oil, 6 tons of kitchen grease and 1/2 a ton of batteries. UAlbany faculty, staff, and students participate in the nationwide RecycleMania challenges in an effort to increase waste reduction and recycling.
