Pens, Pencils & Markers Waste Collection 

Humber College recycles all types and brands of writing instruments. You can recycle: 

  • Pens and pen caps 
  • Mechanical pencils 
  • Markers and marker caps, including dry erase and permanent 
  • All brands and any colour
  • ...basically if you write with it, it can be collected for recycling! 

Instead of throwing away your writing instruments once they have reached the end of their usable life, place them into the collection bins located across campeses.
