Quinnipiac University is committed to building one of the most environmentally friendly campuses in the United States. As part of its overall sustainability plan, Quinnipiac is a single-stream recycling community. Therefore, we ask all members of the community to make a conscious effort to recycle the waste that they generate. Single-stream recycle bins are located throughout the campus. Items such as metal cans, glass bottles, newspapers, magazines and other paper items, as well as plastic containers numbered 1 through 7, can be placed in the bins. No sorting is necessary.

To further support recycling, Quinnipiac urges its community members to reduce waste by conserving paper, conserving water and turning off lights and electronic devices when not in use.
