Tips

In order to be as efficient as possible please follow these tips:

  • Please do not throw any half filled cups, bottles, cans, or containers of any liquid waste, or food waste into the recycle bins. Make sure the items you deposit are empty, & dry. Any materials that have been contaminated by food wastes are not considered recyclable.
  • Close the lid on the recycle container once you have made your deposit.
  • Place cardboard in the containers marked for it, and not in the containers marked, "single stream".
  • Please break down cardboard boxes before depositing them into the "cardboard only" containers.
  • If your recycle container is full and you would like it emptied please submit a Facilities Work Request orcall extension 5296.

Recycling Container Locations

  • Haggar Dock Compactor: All approved recyclables listed above except for glass . Glass is deposited in a separate tote container.
  • E-waste is recycled, however we do not have a campus site to store your office e-waste. Please wait for  the email announcing the next campus e-waste collection date.
  • Shredding bins are for department use only and are requested via work order.
