Got Plastic?

30+ new locations on campus for plastics recycling!

UMBC now offers collection and recycling of all clean plastic bags, films, and wraps! These items can be placed into one of the 35 yellow bins located throughout campus. The bins will be placed on campus over the next two to three weeks. 

These plastics require a special process for recycling and cannot be recycled in single stream recycling (blue bins).

To view a full list of items that can be recycled in the yellow bins visit the Plastic Bags & Films Recycling Page on Sustainability Matters.
