The Maintenance & Operations Department is committed to assisting in reducing the carbon footprint at Delta College by reducing, reusing, and recycling. Recycling prevents re-usable materials from ending up in a landfill. Assembly Bill No. 75 requires campuses to adopt an integrated waste management plan to reduce waste by a minimum of 50%. In order to meet this mandate, Delta College operates a "co-mingle" recycle waste program. This means that all recyclables can be thrown in the same can and do not have to be separated.
What Can Be Recycled?
- Paper - All Colors
- Newspapers & Magazines
*Please make sure that any drink containers are emptied before placing them in the recycling can.
- Batteries (Household batteries can be sent to the Maintenance office for proper disposal)
- Toner & toner cartridges, including inks, should be returned to the Publication Center for proper disposal.
