Recycling Efforts

RU Green Recycling Efforts

We must work together to ensure that the university community is able to recycle efficiently and effectively. To do this, it is important to become familiar with items that can and cannot be recycled on campus.

There are three main types of recyclables that can be collected on campus through the recycling program:

  • Aluminum cans
  • Mixed paper/cardboard
  • Plastic

Recycling bins are located in all academic and administrative buildings. Students, faculty ands staff should collect recyclables in their residence hall rooms, offices and classrooms, and bring them to the closest bins for recycling. Make sure you are recycling correctly to avoid contamination.

Recycling bins are located strategically around campus at the following facilities:

  • Hasty Student Life Center
  • Burgess Administration Building
  • Lawson Academic Center
  • Falany Performing Arts Center
