New Year, New Lid! Mixed Recycling is here.

Recycling on the Medford/Somerville and SMFA campuses is now mixed! The Boston campus is currently being transitioned to mixed recycling.



“Mixed recycling” means that the items you normally sort into the blue and green-capped recycling bins (paper/cardboard and glass/metal/plastic) can be disposed of together.
