Sustainability & Recycling - Waste Management

Proper waste management is essential to building sustainable and healthy communities. This involves learning how to responsibly and efficiently handle our resources from cradle to grave. Always use "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" as a hierarchy for waste management.




Recycling is the reprocessing of materials into new products. It prevents the waste of potentially useful materials, reduces the consumption of raw materials, reduces energy usage, and saves money on waste disposal. See links below for information on recycling at MUSC. Please refer to the "Recycling Guide" and other information below and call the Helpdesk at 843-792-4119 for service.
