The Terracycle Program that has been used in the past at NIU to recycle pens and other office supplies has recently been discontinued. As a result, Campus Mail is no longer able to accept these items, as they have no way to properly recycle them. Although efforts have been made to find an alternative source for office supply recycling, the NIU Green Team has been unsuccessful in finding another means for pen recycling.
At this time, departments should refrain from sending pens and other items to Campus Mail. Members of the Green Team are still working towards finding another source for pen recycling, and when one is found, an announcement will be made with further instructions.
