Fine paper and newsprint recycling

Recycled paper can be placed in office/classrooms small blue bins or in blue recycle receptacles in corridors. Photocopy stations have large blue recycling totes on wheels where paper can be recycled.

Used text books can be returned to the Campus Store during their buy back periods.

If you're moving, cleaning out your work area and have a large quantity of recycling, call ahead to Custodial Services at x4450 to arrange for a large-wheeled recycling tote.
