Greening the Library: We recycle

Posted: October 28th, 2016

We are committed to reducing waste! Queen’s diversion initiatives need all of our participation to succeed, and we are asking for your help to reach our goals.

We recycle at the Library, and have recycling bins in all of our locations. Please do your part by making use of them, including putting your waste and recyclable items into the proper containers. Sorting practices on campus are similar to the way you recycle at home.
