• The Recycle Program has moved their
  operations from the student government
  (USUAA) to the Sustainability Office
  under the Administrative Services
• What has changed?
• Location of the website
• Direct overview from a staff member

• Location of our office/HQ
      What Hasn’t Changed:
• Mixed paper & cardboard recycling is still
  collected by UAA students.

• The e-mail address for the recycle program is

• The program will continue weekly recycle
  pickups on the main campus, and at the
  same locations within the buildings.
    Recycling in Your Building:

•   How does it work?
•   When do we pick up recycling?
•   What if we want another bin?
•   What resources are available?
         How does it work?
• Recycling at UAA is a joint effort between the
  recycle workers and the staff, faculty and
• If staff, faculty and students want to recycle,
  they must put their mixed paper and/or
  cardboard in a blue recycle bin. It might take
  a little effort on their part, but if they are
  willing, it can really make a difference in the
  long run.
        How it works (cont.)
• If an office or department on campus
  recycles, they usually have one large blue
  recycle bin located in a central area (usually
  in the copyroom/mailroom).
• Staff and faculty normally have a box or bin
  that fits under a desk or in their workspace,
  and whenever the box or bin gets full, they
  take it and dump it into the central recycle bin.
• Sometimes it’s close enough to even take
  recycling from their desk or work area directly
  to the central recycle bin.
    How does it work (cont.)
• Finally, for the main on-campus
  buildings, the recycling is collected from
  the central bins by the recycle crew, and
  is handled by us and the recycle center
  from there on out.
        When do we pick up
• Recycling gets collected every Friday (unless
  the campus is closed) for on-campus
• Recycling for off-campus buildings gets
  collected on a weekday, and varies from
  semester to semester depending on class
  and school schedules. For this Spring 09
  semester, recycling for off-campus buildings
  is collected on Wed.
     New office/department
• If you notice that an office/department in
  your building is without easy access to a
  centrally located recycle bin, please
  contact us via e-mail or phone call, and
  we’ll try to deliver a bin within a couple
  of weeks.
