Recycling on Campus

This page is currently under construction. 

Students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors all play a part in helping UF reach our 90% waste reduction goal.

Not all communities recycle the same way, so it’s important to review the guidelines and expectations when stepping onto campus for the first time.

Recycling at UF

All dining halls, residence halls, and academic buildings have recycling bins inside and outside.

At UF, we use dual stream recycling, so it’s essential that you separate your recyclable items accordingly. Paper and cardboard items will go in a bin separate from glass, metal, and plastic. You should NOT recycle items that are not approved for these bins, even if the item has a recycling arrow on it.

Specialty recycling

Some materials do not fit in the typical waste or recycling bins, but they can still be serviced through campus waste management options.
