Information for Faculty and Staff

Academic and Administrative Buildings Recycling Pickup Schedule

Under normal circumstances Recycling performs a weekly route around campus. You can find out what day your building is serviced by viewing the 2014 Recycling schedule. Occasionally we'll deviate from this schedule due to things like special events and holidays. If you're encountering a problem with recycling waste being retreived in your area, please let us know by calling 864-656-4219 or by e-mailing Dave VanDeventer.

Relocating or Cleaning Out Your Office?

Please let us know if you plan on relocating or cleaning out your office. We can supply you with additional bins for the amount of recycled paper you'll be getting rid of, and your call will alert us that your department needs some special attention. Also, please don't overload your existing bins repeatedly under these circumstances. We'll gladly accommodate your needs if you will give us a call at 656-2186.

Order Your Free Recycling Bin

Recycling bins are provided to faculty and staff upon request and are free of charge. We also provide bins temporarily in such cases as office clean-out and special events. Bins are available in the following sizes, listed from smallest to largest:

Information for Students

Thank You for Recycling!

We are excited you are interested in recycling. As a student, there are many things you can do to participate in the recycling process. Here is a brief listing:

On Campus Residents

  • Recycle in your residence hall or apartment. If you are unsure about where or what to recycle, contact your RA.
  • Recycle your cover sheets and unwanted paper in the computer labs.
  • Recycle plastic bottles and aluminum cans while you are tailgating at the home games.
  • During move-in, recycle your cardboard boxes by stacking them near, but not in, the nearest trash dumpster.
  • Participate in upcoming events! Visit the Clemson Recycling Calendar for a list of events per semester or contact us at recycle@clemson.edu to get involved!

Off Campus Residents

  • Did you know you can still recycle, even if you live off campus? Bring your paper, newspapers, magazines, cardboard, glass, plastics # 1 & #2, steel cans and more to the Kite Hill Recycling Center (click link)
