Mask recycling

At Concordia, masks are recycled

Wearing a mask is no longer mandatory in most university settings. However, because it remains an effective tool in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, procedure masks remain available at most Concordia building entrances.  

The Zero Waste Program and Environmental Health and Safety are working with an external recycling partner (MultiRecycle) to reduce Concordia’s mask waste.

  • The masks will be separate into three parts: elastics, nose clip and filter.

  • The nose clip is 100% recyclable aluminum.

  • The filter part will be shredded and made into new useful products. 

*All colours of disposable masks, N95 and K95 masks are accepted in our mask recycling bins.
