Where is the closest recycling dumpster?
Blue single-stream recycle dumpsters are generally located near your trash dumpster. It is your responsibility to take your recyclables to the designated locations. Please note that our recycler does not accept loose plastic bags or wraps. You are, however, allowed to use a plastic bag to hold your recyclables. You have three options: 1) use a plastic bag to hold your recyclables, 2) use a paper bag, or 3) place recyclables into the blue dumpster loose (options 2 & 3 are preferred).
Single-Stream Recycle Dumpster
Remember – no loose plastic bags or wrap in the big blue single-stream recycle containers! Plastic bags and film or stretch wrap mess up baling equipment and require special care.
On campus, you may recycle plastic bags in the green, hexagon-shaped recycle bins located in the Kerr-Drummond Mezzanine, the Griffith Center, and Stout Hall. These bins were made possible by a Green Student Initiative award and are maintained by student volunteers.
Outside of campus, you may return your plastic bags and other non-rigid plastics to your Stillwater grocers like Sprouts, Food Pyramid and Walmart.
