3.20 Recycling

Willamette University supports the efficient and environmentally responsible use of natural resources. All recycling bins are emptied daily as to prevent large buildup of materials.

Campus Recycling collects glass, tin, aluminum, plastic, newspaper, cardboard, wood, and scrap metal. Campus Recycling has ambitious goals, such as a substantial reduction in the University’s garbage and collection bill, as well as providing the Willamette community with a broader range of recycling services.

In accordance with fire code regulations, recyclable items and/or trash may not be kept in bathrooms, hallways, or other areas that obstruct emergency exits. Recycling collection is only available in approved areas.
