Aluminum and Plastic
In the past year, we have had great success with our blue exterior recycle bins for plastic and aluminum. Thank you! As an expansion of this effort we've started placing blue containers for plastic and aluminum can recycling inside classroom buildings. Buildings we are using as pilot locations for this effort are Lockett, Coates Hall, Prescott, Atkinson and Tureaud. Look for these in vending areas and at entrances.

With the increased number of newspapers being delivered to campus we have placed 30 green recycle bins in the Quad to help capture discarded newspapers. We ask that all students, staff and faculty dispose of newspapers responsibly. Either place newspapers in the green bins in the Quad or in one of the paper recycle boxes in your building.

Since the fall of 2003, Facility Services has distributed 2,000 desk side recycle trays and 800 large recycle boxes to academic and administrative buildings. Look for these boxes in your classroom and office areas. Your building custodial staff is responsible for emptying the interior recycle boxes; for service call Building Services at 578-5392. If you need new or replacement receptacles, send an e-mail to aharri2@lsu.edu; indicate the number and type of container(s) needed, along with the building and room number where you would like them delivered. In the near future, we will begin to replace the large cardboard paper recycle boxes with a more durable blue plastic, paper recycle containers.

We are continuing to add exterior containers for the collection of glass plastic and aluminum as funds become available. Great job by those who are using these resources. (See table for locations). The Department of Landscape Services empties the blue outdoor containers.
