The Facilities Management Recycling Program enhances the UCLA environment by diverting substantial amounts of refuse from landfills and encouraging more responsible use of natural resources. Initiated in 1990, the program currently recycles nearly 9 million pounds generated annually by the UCLA community. We recycle:

  • CRV Beverage Containers
  • Whitepaper
  • Mixed paper and Cardboard
  • Newspaper
  • Green Waste
  • Rock product, Wood and Metal
  • Computer Toner Cartridges

UCLA's complex waste stream includes materials generated by the full-service hospital as well as numerous research laboratories, eating establishments and special events.

While Facilities Management's efforts mainly concentrate on recycling paper, cardboard and green (or landscape) waste, we do not ignore other recyclables. We collect non-white paper and cardboard, in blue bins, separate such items from the waste stream and transport them to a recycling center. In January 2000, we launched a concerted beverage container recycling effort with a grant from the California State Department of Conservation to collect aluminum and plastic.
