Campus Buildings

Recyclable Materials

  • Mixed Office Paper
  • Aluminum Beverage Cans
  • Plastic Bottles & Containers (#1-7)
  • Corrugated Cardboard

*Please note that all of these materials are not collected in every building. Check the stickers and signage on the bins in your building to see which materials are collected. Recyclables are separated by type, which allows Georgia Tech to bring a cleaner, more valuable product to our vendor.

Indoor Recycling Bins

Each Georgia Tech employee is issued a blue desk-side container to collect recyclables. Each employee is responsible for emptying his/her desk-side bin into the appropriate recycling containers in the building.

The standard indoor recycling bins include square green and gray containers and blue recycling barrels.


Shredding Program Pickup

If you would like to request a pickup of sensitive materials to be shredded, fill out the Pickup Request Form to receive a locked bin. 

Temporary Containers

You can request temporary recycling containers for office clean outs or other occasions when your building or department will be generating an excess amount of recyclable material. Use the Temporary Container Request Form to schedule a temporary container delivery.

Toner Cartridge Recycling

Staples will recycle ink and toner cartridges, regardless of brand, at no cost. Download the Ink and Toner Recycling Program Guide.

AWARE Program

The AWARE Program (Actively Working to Achieve Resource Efficiency) is an innovative waste minimization program that has been implemented in all campus buildings.
