Recycling Expansion

The university, as of late last month, is accepting all commingled containers number 1-7. The graphic here displays how that is indicated, usually on the bottom of the container. We recycle through Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority, or MRSWA, and their web page provides a very useful guide to what is recyclable and what is not.

Here are some highlights to guide your sustainable dining experience:




  • anything you place on a tray return will be sorted and recycled
  • these rules apply all across campus in any bin
  • mixed paper is separate from commingled containers, which is what includes glass and plastic

Thank you for reducing, reusing, and finally recycling your waste! Virginia Tech Dining is one step closer to a closed-loop system. Thank you for your care!
