Wentworth Recycles

The Physical Plant’s recycling program represents Wentworth’s commitment to education, and our contribution to the conservation of natural resources and the environment. The program provides for an economical and environmentally safe way to recycle many of the waste items on campus. Students from the Boston Public Schools “School-to-Career” program, under the supervision of teachers/coaches, collect recyclable materials from various sites on campus and package them for collection.
