Single Stream Recycling

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

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.
