The recycling program at CSUN was established in 1991 as a collaborative effort between Associated Students (AS) and the university to promote the benefits of recycling and divert recyclable materials from the university’s waste stream.
The program has been recently renamed to AS Sustainability and Recycling and continues to support the campus community by collecting paper, cardboard, pallets, inkjet and laser toner cartridges, cell phones, tin cans and beverage containers. In addition to collection services at over 200 locations on campus, the program supports and participates in various sustainability projects such as the award winning Sustainable Office Program, Green Events Consulting, and throwing educational events.
AS Sustainability and Recycling's collection services and outreach provide students with organizational and leadership roles as well as work experience. Student participants are an example of environmental stewardship for future generations.
