Managing waste at UNB

refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot

At UNB our first priority of waste management is reducing the amount of waste we produce. If we all take action and refuse products we do not need, reduce our consumption where possible and reuse what we can, there will be less waste to recycle or send to rot in the landfill.

Recycling at UNB

At this time, on the UNB campuses, there are opportunities to recycle paper, refundables, and electronics. We encourage UNB community members to recycle what is possible on campus, and utilize external recycling options for the remainder of your waste.
