Bard staff and off-campus students would like access to resources that allow them to engage in sustainable behaviors. While many on-campus resources are only for campus residents, it is possible to find similar programs off campus.

  • It is Dutchess County law for your landlord to provide a drop off area for recycling and for collection of the materials.
  • Electronics can be recycled through Best Buy in Kingston.  Other "technotrash" like CDs and rechargeable batteries are also accepted there. You can ship items like VHS and cassette tapes to GreenDisk for a small fee.
