About Recycling At HUH

In accordance with the city municipal code, HUH is required to separate recyclable materials from trash. Eighty percent of what you throw out can be recycled, and our comprehensive Single Stream Recycling Program means you can collect all recyclable materials (paper, flattened cardboard, clean containers of aluminum, steel, plastics #1-7, and glass) together in your recycling bag. Please use a separate bin to collect household trash (food waste, Styrofoam, used tissues, etc.). Learn more about living sustainably at HUH.

Recycling and Trash

  • A recycling chute and a trash chute are located in the trash room on each floor of the building.
  • Please use a separate bin to collect household trash (food waste, Styrofoam, used tissues, etc.), and do not throw any trash in with recyclable materials.
  • Regularly empty both recycling and trash to minimize odors and help maintain a pest-free environment.
  • Cardboard boxes should be flattened and left in the trash room.
  • Please do not leave recycling, boxes, or trash in any common area or on the sidewalk.

Please click here if you have questions regarding the type of materials that can be recycled, how to collect recycling, or where to dispose of it properly.

  • Your apartment is equipped with a garbage disposal that is activated by flipping the nearby wall switch.
  • Disposals are not designed to process large amounts of food and should not be used for rice or fibrous foods (i.e., celery, carrots, potatoes, and other types of foods with peels).
  • Washers and dryers are available in the laundry room located on the second floor of the building and may be used between 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM. Machines operate by coin ($1.75) or credit card.
  • Please be courteous and remove your laundry from machines promptly when washing or drying is complete.
  • Machines may not be able to accommodate certain items. If you experience any problems with the machines, please contact the service provider, CSC ServiceWorks (877-264-6622). 
  • To reduce your laundry’s environmental impact, consider only washing full loads on the cold water cycle.
  • The courtyard, which is open daily until 10:00 PM, is for the enjoyment of both Harvard at Trilogy and Fenway Triangle Trilogy residents. 
  • Pets, smoking, and any type of grills are not allowed in this area. If you witness any of the foregoing, notify the Property Management Office and the Fenway Triangle Trilogy Concierge Desk.
  • The fitness room is located on the 2nd floor on the right side of the lobby, after the laundry facility, and is available for use by Harvard at Trilogy residents only. 
  • The facilities may be used from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

  • Bicycle storage is located in the public garage, which is managed by Standard Parking. Their office is on Level P1 of the garage, or you can call 617-236-5558. 
  • Residents wishing to store their bikes in the garage must fill out a registration form before they are issued a permit and decal. Please note that Standard Parking will remove bikes that are not properly registered.
  • HUH is not liable for any damage or loss of property. Bicycles must not be left in hallways or attached to stair railings, benches, entryways, or gates. Bicycles found in hallways or attached to the foregoing will be removed without notice at the owner’s expense.
  • Pets, except for fish in an aquarium not to exceed 50 gallons, are not allowed at Harvard at Trilogy.

HUH prohibits the use of grills at all HUH residential properties. This includes charcoal, propane, liquefied petroleum gas, and electric grills, as well as smokers, hibachis, chimineas, etc. 

Smoke Detectors

  • Your building is equipped with individual smoke detectors within each apartment as well as a common area fire alarm system. Apartment detectors will sound only in your apartment when activated. They will not silence until the source of the alarm is eliminated. Open windows to ventilate your apartment if food is burned. Do not open doors to hallways to ventilate.
  • Common area detectors are linked throughout the building. The entire system will sound if one common area detector is activated. If this occurs, the building must be evacuated and the fire department will be called. The system will not be silenced until it is determined by the fire department that the occupants are not in danger.
  • Do not remove or disable detectors. Deliberate triggering of false fire alarms and tampering with apartment or building fire safety equipment are more than a nuisance; they are subject to criminal penalties under Massachusetts law.
  • All detectors and alarm systems are checked and maintained during annual fire safety inspections. Fire alarm testing can be loud and invasive. We make every effort to take academic activity into account when scheduling testing and to provide advance notification to residents. Please contact the Property Management Office for more information.


  • Units are equipped with sprinklers. The sprinkler head will be activated at temperatures of 165°F and above.
  • Sprinkler systems that are not recessed are very sensitive and can be activated if they are banged or pulled. 
  • Please do not hang anything from sprinklers or sprinkler pipes and refrain from stacking items close to them (a minimum of 18” of clearance underneath the sprinkler is required). 
  • Residents are responsible for damages caused by activation due to improper use.
  • It is your responsibility to insure any personal property. HUH and Harvard University do not cover the cost of replacing residents’ personal items (clothing, computers, furniture, stereos, books, etc.) that may be damaged or lost due to theft, fire, water, or vandalism. 
  • Personal property insurance may be obtained by searching online for local insurance agents, National Student Services, Inc. (800-256-6774), or CSI Insurance Agency, Inc. (888-411-4911). 
  • Full-time Harvard employees may also be able to obtain discounted insurance through MetLife (to obtain a quote, call Marsh@WorkSolutions at 866-228-3516). 
  • Students may first want to check if they are covered under their parents’ homeowners policy, if applicable. Also, residents who live here and own a home elsewhere may want to add appropriate coverage to their home insurance policy for a small additional fee.
