Sustainability isn’t just a nice afterthought at the University of Montevallo—it’s an active passion.

That’s why UM has teamed up with the City of Montevallo to place big blue recycling containers in most buildings and classrooms on campus and why UM encourages students to do their part to make a difference.  The blue recycling containers accept paper, #1 plastics and aluminum cans; for glass, #2 plastics, scrap metal, and cardboard, students can visit the Montevallo Recycling Center just off campus.
