Waste Management

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE & COMPOST!

REDUCE & REUSE 

  • Learn how to update your printer settings to double-sided!
  • Skip the disposable cups and bottles- instead, bring your own to save money and waste!
  • UMBC offers discounts at the register for refilling your own coffee mug on campus.
  • Several water bottle refilling stations are located around campus (such as the Commons, Library, and Residence Halls)
  • Don’t just toss plastic bags & waxy receipt, let the cashier know if you don’t need one.
  • Donate bulk items such as furniture through Facilities Management or Retriever Exchange.
