The College is temporarily suspending recycling activity at collection points near certain dining locations on campus. The change is a result of contamination of recycling with regular and food waste, College spokesperson Diana Lawrence said in a statement. Collis Cafe, the Hop Courtyard Cafe and King Arthur Flour are such areas of high contamination, which has resulted in difficulties in processing for the recycling facility. The Class of 1953 Commons has not been affected by this contamination. The College is currently working with the facility to identify and resolve the issue.
