Recyclable Materials

At UIC, you can recycle paper, cardboard, metal, glass and most plastic materials in the hallway bins found in every building on campus (and even in the "BigBelly" receptacles outside). You can even recycle laboratory plastics, gloves, batteries, pens and markers, and plastic bags in a select number of buildings.

UIC recycles almost like the City of Chicago. The difference is that UIC separates paper/cardboard from the rest of the recycling. UIC receives revenue for paper and cardboard, which helps to fund UIC's recycling program.
