Specialized Recycling

Learn how you can dispose of less common recyclable items.

  1. Electronics

    Electronic property at the end of its usable life should go through WVU’s surplus property system. Items that are not sold through surplus are recycled through a third-party vendor.

    Make an electronics pick-up request

  2. Textiles

    WVU has four textile bins open for 24/7 recycling of clothing and linens.

    • Mountaineer Station Intermodal Facility
    • West entrance of the Student Recreation Center
    • Behind Chemistry Research Laboratory
    • South entrance of Reynolds Hall      
  3. Metal

    WVU recycles large metal items generated in its operations, such as renovation and construction. Many furniture items that contain metal can be recycled as well, but are subject to WVU surplus guidelines.

    Make a metal pick-up request
