Recycling Services is tasked with developing and implementing a comprehensive waste and recycling program. Working collaboratively with the campus community, this unit oversees areas of waste prevention, recycling, composting, recycled product research, public education and campus recycling procedures. A plan has been developed to comply with all federal, state, and local statutes and regulations governing solid waste issues.

A warehouse also loans moving boxes to the campus community, provides moving services, and manages the surplus furniture warehouse (an appointment may be made to view used furniture and office items).

The CSU system is committed to designing an excellent 50% waste reduction and recycling program.
