Community Service

Campus Wide Programs & Events

TerraCycle (Year Round)
In the fall of 2013 our office joined several TerraCycle brigades in an effort to provide more recycling options across campus and in the Huntingdon community! Every week students and staff at Juniata College sort and ship packages to the TerraCycle organization to be recycled (and up-cycled). Additionally, the money that is raised for each item sent is donated to a charity of our choice. For a list of items that our office accepts click here.
