TO: Faculty and Staff, Boston-SMFA

Over the past week, new waste stations have been added to the SMFA campus. All waste stations across campus are now equipped with two bin options: “landfill” and “mixed recycling.” If your waste station does not have both bin options, please submit a work order.

Please place paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, and metal in the mixed recycling. Food, soft paper (e.g. tissues, paper towels), and flexible plastic (e.g. plastic bags, saran wrap, grocery bags) must be placed in the “Landfill” bin. 

For more information, see the comprehensive list of items that can be recycled at the SMFA.

Please do not contaminate the recycling. Before placing items in the “mixed recycling” bin:

  • Dump out liquids
  • Rinse or wipe out messy food containers

As you might have noticed, trash buddies have also been provided to your office by Tufts University. This program overview explains how to use your updated desk-side waste station.  

Thank you for your cooperation as Tufts works to improve its recycling program in line with the Campus Sustainability Council’s waste reduction goals.

Contact with any questions.
