Bucknell University Facilities is committed to make recycling work and dedicated to improving the percent of waste that is recycled. Clearly marked recycling containers are placed throughout the buildings in an effort to make disposal of recyclable material convenient for all personnel. Facility custodians collect the recyclable materials and place them in the nearest campus recycling bins.
The Facilities Grounds and Labor shop performs all the hauling and sorting of collected waste from the outside containers. Waste is transported to the Lycoming landfill. Single Stream Recycling is hauled by Waste Management to a transfer facility and then a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). The MRF sorts the single stream into end commodities that are sold to offset transportation costs.
For one-time, very large recycling pick-ups such as cardboard boxes after a move in or office record purge call 7-1911. Facilities will coordinate the details of the waste collection.
If you have any comments or ideas to improve convenience of recycling please contact Facilities at 7-1911.
