POSTPONED - you may hold on to your office supplies until the new date, which will be announced soon, or bring to Staples to recycle as long as they are open.

Don't know where to recycle your office supplies?

On March 24, and March 25 from 10-2, drop off your ink and toner cartridges/drum units/writing supplies/batteries at the designated station in the Agora. Writing supplies include pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, and so on.

These materials will be recycled into new products courtesy of Staples and Terra Cycle. The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

Electronic waste is not accepted at this event. If you have electronics you need to recycle, please submit a work order to have them picked up.
