How Our Program Works:
The A.S. Campus Recycling Services offers a mixed office paper recycling program. If your department or office needs more bins or has questions about paper recycling, call us at 818-677-4262or email email@example.com.
For staff and faculty, all offices have a blue desk-side bin close to your work area. Go to the “Recycling Guidelines” link below to see what paper can be placed in your blue bin. When the desk-side bin is full, the desk occupant empties the contents into one of the larger blue bins located in each department office or floor. When the large bin is full, Facility Services staff empties these bins into locked, three-yard recycling bins located outside the building.
For CSUN students, on campus, simply look for a blue recycling bin to recycle your paper. Where are they? They are located in every department office or floor in all buildings and the following campus food service locations:
Sierra Center, Arbor Grill, SSU La Tienda, The Edge (Bookstore), USU Mercantile
