Recycling Policies

Bottled Water Policy
In order to reduce unnecessary use of energy and production of landfill waste, Wesleyan is developing policies which

  • prohibit the use of college funds to purchase bottled water
  • pohibit the use, distribution, and sale of bottled water by College groups
  • promote environmentally-friendly alternatives to single-user bottled water containers
  • prohibit the use of college funds to purchase plastic foam food containers, plates, cups, and other utensils
  • promote the use of reusable, recyclable, and compostable alternative to plastic foam food service products

Recycling on the Wesleyan Campus
The Wesleyan campus community has adopted procedures to encourage greater participation in recycling by placing sorting receptacles for paper, plastic and aluminum on each floor of the residence halls and in every building on campus. The Willet Memorial Library, Academic Center, classrooms and administration offices also have receptacles for recycling available in the buildings.

Waste Diversion
We continue to expand our recycling program by recycling aluminum, plastic, paper, and cardboard. This has resulted in a reduction of solid waste sent to the landfill. Waste produced by the horses at our Equestrian Center is now sent for composting rather than being taken to the landfill.

Calendar of Events

Wesleyan College is privileged to steward many arts and cultural events and share them with the community. Most are free and open to the public. Wesleyan art galleries are open M-F 1:30 – 5:00 PM and on Wesleyan Market Saturdays from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
