Grounds Refuse/Recycle

Refuse/Recycle

Environmental regulations and recycling opportunities mean we can no longer just "toss out the garbage". Environmentally hazardous materials, bio-medical waste, construction materials, white goods, yard waste and many other materials require special handling and separate disposal channels.

The University Solid Waste Management Office manages the collection and disposal of all solid waste generated through University operations, including medical waste. It also manages the University's Recycling Program and provides collection and recycling services for paper, corrugated containers, beverage containers, scrap metal, pallets, masonry, yard waste and other widely used materials.

Most refuse/recycling services are provided on regular schedules set by the user, but the Office can also arrange a variety of special support services - just ask!
