Sustainability at Lakeside

Lakeside Apartments is served by Princeton University waste services.  The University is committed to reducing its total waste stream, and we are each responsible for our share of the waste reduction effort! You can find trash, recycling, and composting bins throughout the property:

  • Green bins are for trash.
  • Blue bins are for recycling.
  • Brown bins are for composting.


Please see the links below for a brief overview of items that may be recycled in the mixed recycling bins at Lakeside and Princeton. You should NOT bag your recycling! The University’s complete recycling guidelines may be found at the Office of Sustainability Website.

What may I recycle in Lakeside bins?


  • Do not use composting bags (also no “compostable” bags) and discard only food waste!
