Recycling preserves our natural resources: not just raw materials like metal ore and tree pulp, but also the electricity and water required to process these materials. Recycling prevents us from burying our resources in landfills by keeping materials in circulation. For more information go to the “Why Recycle” link.

Questions about the Rhode Island Recycling Program?
I want to help improve recycling at URI. What can I do?
Just set a good example by recycling all you can. Educate others in the benefits of recycling, reduce your waste, and reuse whenever possible. The best thing you can do to help improve recycling at URI is not to waste. It’s much better for the environment to reduce the amount of what you buy, reuse what you have, and lastly to recycle. Think before you buy. Use a refillable water bottle rather than those plastic bottles that waste energy and natural resources. Don’t buy products with excessive packaging. Do you really need your iced coffee in a clear plastic cup, a foam cup, and a disposable plastic straw? Set a good example by using fewer of the earth’s natural resources and educating others to REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE.
