Trash & Recycling

Students are expected to clean up after themselves and their guests. This includes cleaning up after on-campus or off-campus parties. Littering is not permitted on or off campus. Students may not create or leave excessive messes on or near campus property.

Students are responsible for recycling. There are two streams: paper and co-mingled. Paper refers to any paper, magazines, newspapers, etc. and can be recycled in the recycling stations and dumpsters located around campus. The only kind of paper that cannot be included is corrugated cardboard, which should be placed in the cardboard recycling container. The co-mingled stream consists of aluminum cans, tin, plastic containers, etc. and can be placed in the designated slots or blue bins located in the recycling stations. Rinse the containers and remove the lids. (The custodial staff does not pick-up these materials in residence halls. If you want to recycle, you must collect the items and remove the recyclables to the recycling centers on campus. In residential buildings, containers for residents to use to transport recyclable materials may be provided.)
