Tufts recycles

Now it's even easier to recycle on Medford campus

Recycling, energy and the environment are inextricably linked, so Tufts Recycles has relocated within Facilities Department on the Medford/Somerville campus, and Betsy Isenstein, energy manager in the Facilities Department, has assumed responsibility for overall program leadership.

Anja Kollmuss has joined the department as a part-time recycling coordinator on the Medford/Somerville campus. Kollmuss holds a master's degree in environmental policy from Tufts and works part time for the Tufts Climate Initiative.

The Facilities Department's Jesse Carreiro will continue to manage the many day-to-day details necessary to keep recyclable material moving to the next destination. He ensures that recyclables are picked up promptly and properly on the Medford/Somerville campus.

The undergraduate recycling student employees, led by Kollmuss, are busy relocating bins, improving signage and adding lids to help prevent recyclables from becoming contaminated. The goal is to make recycling easier for all on the Medford/Somerville campus.

Battery collection containers are now located throughout the Medford/Somerville campus at the following locations: Anderson Hall, Cabot Intercultural Center, Cousens Gym, Eaton Hall, Science and Technology Center (4 Colby Street), Miner Hall, Packard Hall third floor, Tisch Library, the Tufts Administration Building (TAB) and 520 Boston Avenue.
