Are you looking to recycle on campus? You've come to the right place!
Designed by Kyla D'arensbourg
The following items may be recycled through our single-stream recycling program:
Paper (basically anything that tears)
Plastics #1-7 (except Styrofoam and plastic wrap)
Metal cans (aluminum, steel, tin)
All items must be free of food waste, but rinsing is not necessary.
We do NOT recycle
- Plastic Bags
Green recycling bins are located on most floors of campus buildings for your convenience.
Many are located near printers or copiers to collect paper. Since paper is part of
our single-stream recycling program, plastic bottles and metal cans may also be placed
in these bins. To locate the main recycling collection bin nearest to you, review
the locations listed by building.
Outdoor recycling has been made possible again through a Healthy Communities Grant awarded to Southeastern by Keep Louisiana Beautiful. The blue Recycle cans are clearly recognizable. They target plastic bottles and metal cans from campus pedestrians. Each is placed near a garbage can to limit the tendency to place garbage in the Recycle can. Please empty beverage containers before recycling them. We intend to add outdoor Recycle containers as funds become available.

Cardboard could be recycled through the single-stream program, but we also maintain a separate stream for baling and resale of cardboard. This provides an incremental source of revenue. Cardboard boxes may be flattened and deposited next to a recycle bin. Call Physical Plant at 549-3333 for prompt pick up of larger amounts of cardboard.
Used Print Cartridges
Used printer/toner cartridges are also collected in a separate recycling stream. These may be placed beside green recycling bins for pick up. It is helpful if they remain in the cartridge packaging. These used cartridges also provide an incremental source of revenue.
To request a recycling container for your office, to request a one-time pick up, or to report a full recycling bin, contact Physical Plant at 549-3333. Our recycling team is eager to support your collection efforts. We are searching for ways to improve our service as well as campus-wide participation in our recycling program.
