Get Involved

On Your Campus

  • To recycle right here on campus just look out for the blue Pepsico Dream Machine recycling bins or other recycling bins located across the campus.

In the Office

  • You can try bringing reusable snack containers and water bottles to work every day.
  • You can also try to expand your workspace's recycling program or encourage your coworkers to use less paper. What's even better than recycling is no waste at all! So talk with your coworkers to spread the word about recycling!

Where You Live

  • NYC makes it easy to recycle at home with weekly recycling curbside pickups. NYC breaks up garbage into three separate categories: Landfill, paper, and metal, plastic and glass.
  • All recyclable paper products should be put in a clear plastic bag or tied up together. Cardboard boxes should be crushed and tied together. Here is a link to the DSNY's website on the exact paper products that can be recycled: https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/site/services/recycling/what-to-recycle
  • Recycling metal plastic and glass is even easier. They all get placed together in a clear plastic bag and that's it
