The Waste Management division of Facilities has the responsibility of managing the Recycling and Solid Waste programs for the university. As of FY24, the previous Recycling/Surplus/Solid Waste division was restructured to partner Facilities with the similarly restructured Fixed Assets department in managing the disposal of Surplus items. Our goal is to mitigate the waste stream on campus in order to reduce costs, follow regulations and decrease overall waste tonnage. Recycling, Solid Waste and Surplus garner over 90 percent of the waste generated on campus. Working together the programs have created ways to work synergistically, resulting in a significant decrease in waste tonnage going to the landfill as well as additional items being recycled.

The recycling program recycled over 63 tons of material during spring and summer 2023. The materials diverted to recycling during fall semester 2023 doubled to 124 tons. Projections indicate the tonnage will continue to grow as the recycling program grows. The addition of a composting site is expected Fall 2024, diverting another significant amount of waste from the landfill. To learn more about sustainability activities on campus, see the Sustainable Solutions webpage. A list of accepted materials for recycling is also available.
