Recycle old catalogs; don't trash them

Old catalogs, including last year's course catalogs, can now be placed in the gray office recycling bins or in the mixed-paper recycling bins in public areas throughout the campus, according to the Environmental Programs Task Force.

MIT has a goal of recycling 30 percent of its trash (mixed paper, glass, cans, plastics 1-7 and food-preparation compost) by the end of 2000. In terms of tonnage, paper represents the largest of these recyclable commodities, so it's important that outdated catalogues and other mixed paper be recycled.

For more information, contact Kevin Healy, MIT's Recycling Coordinator, at x3-6360 or khealy@mit.edu.
