Students living on Grounds should practice proper recycling by sorting recyclable items into the appropriate bin. Each room is issued a stackable two-bin recycling unit. One bin (blue) is for mixed paper, and one bin (green) is for plastics, metals, and glass. Contact UVA Recycling if your room does not have one or both of these recycling bins.
Staff and faculty in office spaces have multiple options for recycling. These include desk-side bins, central recycling areas, and special pick-up by UVA Recycling staff. To request recycling bins or schedule a pick up of large items, contact UVA Recycling at (434) 982-5050.
UVA Recycling facilitates recycling and waste management at the University, helping to ensure that opportunities for diverting materials from landfills are maximized, materials are properly sorted and tracked to meet UVA’s waste goals.
