Off Campus Recycling


Houses:

Recycling is included in your garbage collection service!!! Request a bin from your trash service provider by calling 524-5221.

Apartments:

Unless your landlord decides to bring in recycling bins, you will have to save up your recyclables and bring them to one of three collections points (DON'T LET A LITTLE EXTRA WORK STOP YOU, THOUGH!!)

  1. Dittmer Parking Lot (located by the campus Police Station on Rt. 73) - 24 hours a day, 7 days per week
  2. Walmart Parking Lot - every 1st Saturday from 9-1
  3. Cook Field - every 3rd Saturday from 9-1

Fraternities:

You are considered 'incorporated' by Rumpke even though technically you live in a house, so you will have to either pay extra for a separate recycling collection service, or you can bring your recyclables to the three locations listed above. (Again, don't let a little extra work stop you from doing the right thing - bring in your recyclables and we will do the rest!)

**The Recycling Office can assist you in obtaining reasonably priced indoor recycling containers if you are interested in starting your own program. Call us at 529-9564 - we would especially like to encourage you to incorporate recycling into your parties and pre-game celebrations.
