Waste Management at JMU

JMU Recycling Logo

In all of its operations, JMU FM uses the 6Rs as a guiding principle towards waste: rethink, reduce, reuse, repair/restore, redistribute, and recycle.

JMU recycles plastics #1 - #7, aluminum cans, paper, glass, cardboard, paperboard, batteries, toner, electronics, waste, metal, wood and much more. Learn more of what you can recycle in our Recycling Guide or on our Recycling page.

In 2009, JMU introduced composting in the dining halls and has since expanded the composting program to include additional dining service locations and land-waste composting. Many single-use, disposable items used in dining service locations have been replaced with compostable items. Learn more about our composting initiative and how you can participate here.
