Roger Williams is continually working to improve our recycling and waste management efforts. We are currently trying to better educate students and faculty by developing motivating re-use programs and events. By taking the time to recycle we will be decreasing our landfills and we will be conserving our natural resources.

What you can do to reduce waste:

  • Re-use products
  • Compost organic material (yard trimmings, food scraps, etc.)
  • Carry your own re-usable bags
  • Sell or donate products you no longer use
  • Take advantage of the community's recycling program
  • Use rechargeable batteries
  • Donate unwanted/old electronics-Computers, cell phones, TVs, etc. Please see waste management guide for more information.

The office of Environmental Health and Safety has provided the following spreadsheets in regards to proper recycling and waste disposal. Please refer to this guide and contact us with any questions.
