Bobcat Recycling & Solid Waste



STU has a single stream recycling program which means that all recyclable items can be placed into one bin and do not have to be sorted. STU also participates in several other types of recycling programs.



Getting Involved:
  1. Be informed -- Learn what items are accepted in STU's single stream recycling.
  2. Educate others -- Shared knowledge is the best knowledge!  Teach co-workers and friends about recycling and it's importance.
