ACADEMIC & ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDINGS 

In academic and administrative buildings, staff and faculty have deskside recycling with mini-trash bins. Once full, faculty and staff are asked to empty their personal recycling and trash into centralized bins located throughout each building. Recycling staff empty centralized bins daily Monday - Friday, and Building Environmental Services staff empty centralized trash bins daily Monday - Friday (in most buildings). Check out our campus wide map of recycling bin locations in all academic and administrative buildings!

RESIDENCE HALLS

In the residence halls, students have recycling bins in their rooms to collect recycling. Students are asked to empty their recycling into centralized recycling stations located either in their residence hall's trash rooms or lobbies. Housing & Residence Life staff move the material from the centralized rooms to the loading dock where recycling technicians collect the recycling.
