Waste Management & Recycling
Waste Management & Recycling supports the campus goal to reduce the amount of material entering the waste stream. There are more than 1,000 recycling bins on campus in which to place paper, plastic, and aluminum cans, as well as a newspaper and cardboard drop-off location at the southeast corner of Oak Street and Kirby Avenue in Parking Lot E14.
The Waste Transfer Station operates daily recycling routes in addition to its regular trash routes. Trash is compacted and shipped to a landfill at a cost to the university. The recyclables collected from campus are manually sorted and deposited in storage bins, then compressed into large bales. Waste Management & Recycling sells those and other recyclable materials to various companies.
