The 3W's Guide
This guide is here to help the Skidmore Community recycle better. Education of our community is essential to the success of this program. Please read carefully and follow the guidelines.
Here you will learn what you can/cannot recycle at Skidmore. Please follow the guidelines. A couple of pieces of trash in the recycling bin can result in the entire dumpster being sent to the landfill.
As a community we need to care about recycling. That's why the students and staff that set up the next recycling system made it very accessible to you.
Every day! A significant portion of the trash that is thrown out each day can be recycled. The EPA estimates that 75% of what Americans throw in the trash could be recycled. Currently, Skidmore community members recycle about 5% of their waste*. This is a good start but clearly there's room for improvement! Please do your part and remember to recycle. If you're in Scribner or Northwoods, remember to put out your recycling on the designated days.
Recycling Pick-up Times
Please put the recycling containers out the morning of the pickup (not the night before) and pick your containers up the same day.
