USU Recycling Center

recycle

Annually USU produces approximately 2,500 tons of solid waste! It is estimated that 65% of that amount is paper, cardboard and other recyclable items such as glass, aluminum, and plastic. Currently USU is recycling approximately 26% of its solid waste stream. USU Recycling is committed to removing as many of these items from the waste stream as possible and thereby reducing the environmental impact created by our institution. Also, the cost to throw these items away is rising every year making it much more of a burden on already stretched financial resources.

USU recycles all grades of paper products and cardboard. Other items that are recycled include: glass bottles, aluminum and steel (tin) cans, plastic milk and pop containers, wood pallets, batteries, and scrap metal. We also participate in a program that uses grass and shrub clippings along with scrap lumber to produce compost that is used on University landscaping.

In addition to serving all campus buildings and housing dorms, USU also produces convenient drop-off centers for those who wish to bring items from home. We welcome your participation in our effort to reduce waste and preserve valuable resources. Call 797-2011 or stop by our drop-off location at 870 East, 1250 North, and see how easy it is to begin or strengthen your recycling efforts.
