Office Paper Recycling

How It Works

1. Obtain a Desk Side Recycling Container for paper recycling at your desk and be responsible for emptying its contents into the green or white office paper recycling bags located in or near your office.
To obtain a Desk Side Recycling Container, set up an office paper recycling bag system, or to get more information about the program, please call the Environmental Health and Safety Programs supervisor at extension 8704.

2. The green or white office paper recycling bags are usually emptied on Monday evenings.

3. The Environmental Health and Safety Programs supervisor administers the overall program, provides and replaces the Desk Side Recycling containers, monitors the green or white paper recycling bags, and handles special request pickups when needed such as end-of-the-year file cleaning.
