Recycling at USciences

Single Stream Recycling

University of the Sciences participates in single-stream recycling.  This means all acceptable recyclables may be placed in the same container. 

USciences’ recycling containers are blue, have the universal recycling symbol on the front, are lined with a clear trash bag, and should be found in every office suite and building on campus.  If you notice a location in need of a recycling bin, please contact the Facilities Service Response Desk at 215.596.8955.
