Glass

Any kind of glass beverage containers including all colors and broken containers should be placed in any recycling bin on campus.

Light bulbs, drinking glasses, Pyrex and glass containers that are used for cooking at high temperatures should go into the trash.

Kent State University is a single stream campus, where all recyclables can be placed in the same recycling bin. Recycling is hauled to a Materials Recovery Facility where recyclables are sorted based on type, baled and then sold. Everyone’s actions minimizing waste, reusing, and recycling at Kent State University diverts nearly a million pounds of waste from landfills every year.
