Building Recycling Locations

During the 2023/24 academic year, recycling access is expanding on campus. Common area bins are going away and being replaced with centralized stations where recycling toters are paired side-by-side with landfill bins. The following buildings have experienced such change-over, with a focus on academic classroom spaces:

  • Corbett Hall, Bond Hall, and Hesburgh Library (first floor), as of November 2023
  • Jordan Hall of Science, as of October 2023
  • Coleman-Morse, as of September 2023
  • DeBartolo and O'Shaughnessy Halls, as of August 2023

Prior to the 2023/24 academic year, some campus spaces were part of an early toter pilot. The table below details buildings that have recycling toters from that legacy program or have more recently made a special request for a toter. The toters in these buildings are not part of the current 2023/24 expansion program.  However, they are being serviced by Building Services.  If you have a specific questions about the operations of recycling in one of these locations, please reach out to Building Services
