Examines early recycling efforts at Rutgers, beginning in 1972, and mandatory recycling required by the New Jersey legislature in 1987 as a result of the landfill crisis.  Discusses the implemented program, covering housing and facilities, dining services, vegetative wastes, drop-off centers, and cardboard.  The recycling program saved an estimated $129,000 in 1988, based on the tipping fee savings.
