Penn College Recycles
The College has a recycling program and all members of the campus community are encouraged to participate. Receptacles are placed throughout campus for convenient disposal of aluminum cans, glass, white and colored paper, and computer paper. Certain departments also coordinate recycling of materials specific to their operations. Remember that participation in this program, developed in coordination with Lycoming County, saves the College money and is beneficial to the environment.
