How to Recycle in Academic/Service Buildings

Separate recyclables in your office according to the guidelines that follow or take your recyclables to the collection area and place them in the appropriate containers. Recycling stations for Mixed Paper (white/colored office paper, newspapers, magazines/catalogs, pressboard) and Mixed Containers (cans/glass/plastics #1 thru #7) have also been placed in the hallway of some buildings. Do not mix trash with recyclables and be careful what you place in each container. The entire shipment of recyclables may be rejected and sent to the landfill if contamination is excessive.

Cans/glass/plastics containers have been placed in all the buildings which could be found in the lobby area, next to all vending machines and are emptied when necessary.

Mixed paper recyclables are picked up by Housekeeping staff on a daily basis or as needed. Desk-side recycling receptacles for office spaces are distributed in most of the buildings and are also available upon request, please contact the Recycling Coordinator at (540) 831-7207. 

Corrugated cardboard should be flattened and placed next to recycling can and is picked up by Housekeeping staff to take the recyclables to a main Recycling Collection Center located in each building.
