NIH Leased Facilities Recycling

Leased facilities in Montgomery County follow Montgomery County business recycling guidance.  Mixed paper, commingled materials, cardboard, and scrap metal are mandatory items that must be recycled.  Many leased facilities also have a place on the loading dock to recycle toner cartridges.  Collected toner cartridges for recycle contribute to NIH charities.  For specifics, contact your facility manager.

Contact your facility manager to request a recycling bin.

A few of the facilities have their recycling materials sorted by housekeeping on the loading dock.  Please contact your facility manager for specifics on your recycling program.

For NIH leased spaces in Bethesda, Poolesville, and Montgomery County, please contact  Jacquelyn Johnson or Bani Bhattacharya for additional information. *Montgomery County Leased Facilities should contact their Facility Manager for pick-ups and containers.

*Only toner cartridges and pipette tip rack boxes are picked up from off-site by the Bethesda campus based crew.

The NIH Recycling Program is committed to the delivery of effective, courteous, innovative, and responsive recycling services to the NIH. We serve to establish a supportive and informational role to coordinate recycling at all NIH installations in cooperation with local, state, and federal agencies. The program integrates the principles of recycling and waste reduction into all phases of daily activities and operations.

Before throwing items in the trash, please stop to consider if it is recyclable.

Zero Waste is a whole system approach which reduces consumption and ensures that products are made to be reused, repaired, or recycled back into nature or the marketplace.
