Recycling on Campus

Mixed Recycling

The University has been recycling since 2004 and in 2010 the campus recycling program expanded to faculty and staff offices. Contribute to our commitment to environmental stewardship by recycling responsibly. Review these guidelines for recycling on campus below!


Mixed recycling containers are located across campus and in building lobbies.

Items that can be recycled are:

  • Paper (notes from class, handouts, flyers, etc.)
  • Plastic Bottles and Jugs (Plastic Recycling Guide)
  • Aluminum
  • Flattend Cardboard
    • All items must be CLEAN, EMPTY, AND DRY!

The Univeristy uses a single-stream recycling system which allows for mixed materail to be collected and then sorted at a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).

Recyclable material can also be tossed in a recycling dumpster on campus. Note: Recycling dumpsters are green and labeled as recycling.

UL Lafayette's recyclables are collected by Republic Services. Please refer to the Republic Service's Recycling Guide to learn about what can and cannot be recycled. View their Quick Recycling Guide here
