TerraCycle coordinates national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste, then converts the collected waste into a wide variety of products and materials. For each piece collected, the company donates toward a charity of your choice. Johns Hopkins is participating in a number of TerraCycle Brigades on campus, and all collected items help reduce waste on campus and give back to Blue Water Baltimore.



  • At Homewood, collect items in any office using the signage above and campus mail to: Homewood Recycling, Wyman 3, Attn: Leana Houser. Or drop them in collection bins in all residence hall lobbies except Bradford.

  • At Carey Business School, writing instrument bins are located in all mail rooms. To recycle personal care, oral care, and energy bar wrapper materials, collect in your office and request a pickup by Campus Operations.
