Bryant University is working hard to improve our ability to divert materials from our waste stream.

Bryant has recycling containers in all individual work spaces, student rooms, and all public areas including exterior entrances. During the past year Bryant has recycled 171.63 tons of material. Bryant also re-purposed 77.73 tons of furniture during the past year, shipping to development and relief efforts in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Haiti.
