Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

A Little R and R and R

Reduce, reuse, and recycle in that order. Before you buy something you should ask yourself, "Do I really need this?" If you do need it, ask yourself, "Can I reuse it?" It is far better to buy durable, reusable goods than disposable ones. For example, instead of getting disposable shopping bags every time you go grocery shopping, get a bunch of reusable cotton bags that you can use and reuse over and over. Finally, ask yourself, "When I am finished with this item, can I recycle it?"


Auburn University Recycling Program

Update - 11/20/2009

Due to the holiday season and the time needed to prepare for the new sorted recycling program for campus buildings, AU Recycling is postponing the launch of the new recycling program until January 2010. They will continue to make changes to the website and conduct building walk-throughs to prepare several buildings to start the new sorted recycling program after the holidays. They will send out and post on our website the list of buildings which will be coming on-line in January in the coming weeks.
