Let's talk trash!

Graham has clearly marked recycling, waste, and compost bins throughout the building with signs indicating what goes where in order to make waste diversion for Graham residents as easy as possible. Residence hall rooms also contain waste and recycling bins.

Recycling turns materials that would otherwise be waste into valuable resources. Among the many benefits of recycling are pollution prevention, emissions reduction, and natural resource conservation. With waste diversion made easy, residents living in Graham should have no trouble diverting their waste and ensuring that as little as possible goes to a landfill.
