Middlebury has long been a leader in the sustainable use of resources, from the careful stewardship of our land to the thoughtful processing and disposal of what we use on campus.
From using 100 percent recycled paper to green cleaning products, Middlebury ensures that we respect our campus commitment to sustainability through our purchasing decisions.
Recycling and Compost
Middlebury runs its own recycling center and compost operation. In 2013 alone, 65 percent of our waste was diverted from landfills via composting, recycling, and reuse.
Building and Lands
The College’s building deconstruction policy ensures that material from old buildings is reused and recycled.
