Waste Diversion


Lazy Scholar Recycling Centre

Mac-Corry Hall and the Lazy Scholar (Victoria Hall) are home to environmentally friendly multi-sort recycling, composting and waste containers. These containers are part of our on-going waste diversion strategy.

These multi-sort containers have several different slots which encourage people to separate their waste based on the recycling protocols.  A combination of pictures and text explain which container your waste should be placed within. See the images below.

If you are unsure of which slot you should to place your waste,  please place it into the garbage to avoid complicating the recycling and composting streaming process.

These multi-sort containers help campus community members become active participants in the university’s waste diversion strategy.

The Queen’s Sustainability Office will track the use of these multi-sort containers throughout their on-going waste audits. The AMS and Queen’s Sustainability have created a video on proper waste diversion for the blue, green and grey receptacles located across campus:
