The University strongly encourages active support of the recycling effort and encourages all departments to review and revise their processes and procedures to enhance the recycling program.


A viable recycling program conserves energy and natural resources, reduces the impact on the local landfill, reduces operating costs of trash collection and disposal, and provides a role model for its students.

1.  Use of Dumpster Containers

Dumpster containers are used to accumulate garbage and trash. The dumpsters are to be used only for garbage and trash resulting from University business. Use of the dumpster containers for "private" garbage and trash is prohibited and will be enforced by the CSU Police Department. Violators will be subject to warning, disciplinary action, fine, or prosecution, as appropriate.

2.  Recycled Materials

Facilities Management is the designated recycling center for the University. All recyclable materials are considered to be a University resource. Recyclable materials will not be declared to be surplus without written authorization from Facilities Management.
