Yes

A brief description of the enterprise:

Recycling Café is a student initiative that promotes sustainability on campus while partnering with a local business. The Café gives students an opportunity to learn about electronic waste recycling and offers free coffee, donated by dining services and Starbucks, to students who bring their reusable mugs and bring something to recycle. It operates at high-traffic student areas such as the George Sherman Union during each semester and at the Mugar Library during the week of final exams.
