Where to Recycle on Campus
In residence halls: If you live in a traditional residence hall, take your trash and recycling to one of the common collection areas in your building. If you live in apartment-style housing, take your trash and recycling directly to the outdoor dumpsters.
In dining areas: Avoid take out containers when you can. Dining Services has a number of sustainable dining options to help you avoid single use items when eating on campus. When you have unwanted leftovers in a recyclable take-out container, first scrape off or discard any food scraps into a trash can and then recycle your take-out plastic and paper.
In the office: The desk-side bins in your office are for recycling. Please dispose of non-recyclable waste in the centralized recycling bins in your office building.
