Advancing Waste Management Towards Zero Waste

Lehigh recognizes the role that eliminating, reducing, reusing, and recycling serves in decreasing the consumption of virgin resources and enhancing the sustainability of campus operations and maintenance. The more Lehigh faculty, staff, and students reduce, reuse, and recycle, the more Lehigh contributes to a sustainable environment.

Water Bottle Refill Stations

Since 2014, Lehigh has installed over fifty water bottle refill stations on campus.  These stations have eliminated the use of over one million plastic water bottles. Click here to view a map of all the water bottle refill stations on campus.
