Penn Engineering Recycling Options
The recycling center was put forth in 2012 to bring awareness to the Penn Engineering community about the alternative purposes for our waste. Since its creation, the recycling center has successfully diverted thousands of pounds of waste from landfills. The Penn Engineering community must be more conscientious when disposing of plastics and mixed paper products, which make up most of our waste stream. From these actions, we hope that those within the school will be inspired to continue these sustainable practices wherever they go.
