Free Special Item Recycling

Four recycling bins on grass: blue for paper, green for glass, yellow for metal, red for plastic.

It’s pretty nifty to say we beat our ivy competitors in our sustainability efforts (take that, Harvard!) when we participate in RecycleMania contests. To add to our bragging rights, we can drop off recycling items that our home curbside pickup won’t take—such as scrap metal, cell phones, CDs and ink cartridges—at the PSSI Recycling Center next to the Fire Station at 701 Serra Street. Drop offs are free.
