More about recycling @UWL

A page within Recycling

Most people think UWL recycling is limited to paper, cardboard, and co-mingled recyclables (plastics #1-#7, glass, aluminum, and bi-metal cans).  However, we also recycle a lot of other items.  Some less common, but still present items are included but not limited to:

  • Scrap metal
  • Tires
  • Wood pallets
  • Appliances (e.g.,  refrigerators, microwaves, stoves, etc.)
  • Electronic scrap (e.g., computers, monitors, peripherals, etc.)
  • Fluorescent and other light bulbs
  • Fluorescent light ballasts
  • Tree stumps
  • Landscaping brush
  • Oil 
  • Antifreeze 
  • Compost
  • Batteries (automotive and other rechargeable)
  • High BTU solvents

  If you are a numbers person, see our fiscal year (FY) recycling summaries.
