Recyling at Reunions

More than 50 EcoReps teamed up to enhance recycling at Move Out and at Reunions 2016 for the seventh consecutive year. The students collected nearly 5,000 #5 and #6 cups at Reunions which were sent to be upcycled into products such as Adirondack chairs, toothbrushes, and other household items.

Princeton Garden Project Summer Hours 2019

The Princeton Garden Project has open drop-in hours on Tuesdays and Saturdays this summer until August 13!

Join our summer garden managers in weeding, planting and harvesting organic produce. 

Work days are Tuesdays 5:30pm-7:30pm and Saturdays 3:00pm-5:00pm. All are welcome, no experience necessary!

The Princeton Garden Project is located on 79 Alexander Street, north of Forbes College. Turn left when you see the sign!

This past Earth Day, Princeton released its new Sustainability Action Plan. As the University’s largest and most visible event, Reunions will play a critically important role in achieving our aspirational goal to produce zero waste.
At the same time, international recycling markets are undergoing major changes, most notably with the market virtually disappearing for soiled, mixed recyclables, which have required key changes in how Princeton manages waste.
