Medford and Somerville both have curbside recycling programs that are now single-stream, which means that bottles, cans and paper can all be placed in the same recycling bin for pick-up. Your house or apartment can easily become involved with these programs. Check out our pages on recycling off-campus in Somerville and Medford, which include information on what is recyclable in each city’s recycling program, or visit the websites of the cities of Medford or Somerville for more detailed information. Tufts ECO’s useful map for off-campus students contains a list of trash collection routes as well as energy efficiency tips.
If you would like to compost, please visit one of our two composting bins on campus, located at the rear of Miller Hall and the rear Tisch Library loading dock. Click here for more information.
