Transparency Film

Transparency Film


Film Transparencies or "plastic overheads" are collected through a special recycling program sponsored by the 3M Corporation. This material must be kept separate from other paper and containers.

Send transparency film through Campus Mail envelopes to:

UVM Recycling Office
Physical Plant
284 East Avenue

Or, call UVM Recycling at 656-5731 or e-mail recycle@uvm.edu to request a special "Transparency Film Collection Envelope."

UVM Recycling consolidates this material, and ships it to a regional facility in Pennsylvania for recycling into polyester fiber fill, new overheads, and other plastic products.
