Check out the recycling data for the last several years.

FY2015-FY2020 Recycling Data


In an effort to understand the significant decline of recyclables collected in fiscal year 2019, employee and student surveys were distributed in the fall of 2019. As a result from the feedback given from those surveyed, a new recycling communication campaign was launched in January and February of 2020. The COVID pandemic significantly affected campus population, which is reflected in recycling and landfill totals.
