Pen, Pencil, and Marker Recycling

Do you have a growing collection of pens with no ink, pencil stubs, or markers that have dried up? Jackson Library now has a place to recycle old pens, pencils, and markers! There are boxes located at the Circulation Desk, the Digital Media Commons, and the Harold Schiffman Music Library to recycle these items. Permanent markers and highlighters are also accepted.
