Recycling

For Large Items and E-Waste

Do you have something that needs recycled? Check out the appropriate link below.

When you are ready to have Facilities pick up your items after following the above processes, please fill out a Maintenance Request.

 

For General Recycling

There are central collection areas (CCA) in most buildings where recycling can be deposited. The custodians generally take the collected materials from the CCA to the outside pick-up areas to be collected every day of the week. We can also provide some temporary containers for large clean out projects upon request.
