- There should be a big bin for glass, metal, and plastic commingles in or near every CSAIL kitchen.

- Plastic Bags are recycled in a separate recycling stream from other plastics on campus. Please do not put them the commingles recycling bins! Put plastic bags, bubble wrap, journal wrap, air pockets, and plastic wrap in an envelope (no larger than 10" x 13", please) addressed to "Recycling, NW62" and place it in an Interdepartmental Mailbox.

- There should be a big bin for paper, cardboard, magazines, etc in or near every large CSAIL printer (and near smaller-volume printers). Staples, paperclips, and small amounts of metal do not have to be removed from your paper; cardboard boxes should be flattened before putting them in or next to the paper recycling bins, though. Remember, "If you can rip it, you can recycle it."

- If you'd also like to have a deskside paper recycling bin, you can get one for FREE from MIT Facilities by filling out the on-line form at (they'll also get you a deskside trash bin if you want one).

- If you've small electronics (keyboards, speakers, cables, disks-floppy or hard, printer cartridges, etc) that previous inhabitants of your office left for you that you don't want and that you think no one on or will want, you can recycling those items by putting them in the TechnoCycle? bin inside TIG's suite on the 2nd floor or in the TechnoCycle? bin on the Student Street.

- And finally, there are composting bins in the basement (Gates side of the loading dock) if you have leftover food orts that won't eat.
