The University of Toledo Office of Sustainability


recycling stations 

These stations which promotes streamline, "common area" recycling, have been expanded across our campuses and contain four bins - mixed office paper, metal cans (e.g. Coke cans), plastic (e.g. Dansani water bottles) and landfill (trash).

  •  Each bin is labeled on top to help you identify the appropriate container.
  • Important to note, when items are not recycled correctly cross-contamination occurs,resulting in all of a bin's contents goes to the landfill.
  • A complete list of stations will be posted on this webpage.  Please check back soon if you need help locating a station.

Recycling containers

office recycling containers

These containers were removed over the summer to promote increased use of the recycling stations, which are conveniently located throughout our facilities (e.g. in hallways).  This was done to reduce labor and other associated costs.It is the employee's responsibility to empty its contents at a recycling station.


Cardboard recycling

  1.  Flatten all empty cardboard boxes.
  2.  Small-and medium-sized boxes should be placed at the recycling station nearest you after they're flattened.Please be sure this cardboard doesn't impede foot traffic by neatly placing it behind the bins.                  
  3.  Large, oversized boxes should be kept in your area (after they're flattened) until Environmental Services can pick up this flattened cardboard; please put in a work order.
