When your bins are full, it's as easy as 1,2,3!



1- Use your desk side containers for trash and recycling generated at your desk

2- Once your containers are full, take your containers to the central locations in your area

3- Empty your containers into the large central containers. These will be serviced daily by the custodial staff.


Tips For the new program:

  • Recycle as much as you can. Most materials generated at your desk are recyclable, which is why your recycling bin is larger than you trash can.
  • For food waste or waste from lunch or snacks, consider taking these items directly to the large central trash can. This will help to avoid any mess or odors at your desk.
  • There will be no desk side service of trash and recycling bins. Please make sure to empty your desk side containers at least once per week.
