OSU Recycles - Request a Bin

Want to recycle but can't find any containers to place your recyclable materials in? Then you are in the right place! To request a bin contact the OSU Recycling Department at recycle@okstate.edu.  

Here are the free types of bins that are available to your department from OSU Recycles:

Bottles/Cans Recycle Bin  (outdoor & indoor)                 



These bins are made from blue corrugated plastic and are available for hallways, receptions suites, breakrooms, and similar spaces.



Paper Recycle Bin and Lid



For paper recycling, we have corrugated cardboard containers that are perfect for hallways, reception suites, and copy rooms.



Desk-side Recycle Box

Desk-side recycle boxes, made out of white corrugated cardboard, are designed to collect recyclable paper in your office.  Once full, you are responsible for emptying the contents into the closest Paper Recycle Bin. 
Prevent Contamination 

Are your recycle bins getting contaminated by trash?  Don’t let them get lonely.  Pull a trash can up to a lonely recycle bin to help reduce contamination.

Fancy Bins

Some departments will want to purchase fancy bins rather than use the above pictured bins, which are provided at no charge to departments.  OSU's Interior Designer has been working on specifications to recommend to departments interested in purchasing different bins.  Currently there are two preapproved upscale bins, listed below. Should you have questions or find other bin designs that your department likes please contact Marneth Weaver, OSU Interior Designer, at 405-744-7418.
