For e-waste generated in the office or classroom at AU, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for easy pickup (AU-owned items will not be accepted at the drive).
Wednesdays in March
Before you throw out your trash, stop and ask yourself, "can this be recycled?" Every Wednesday in March our Green Eagle ecoreps will be out and about around campus looking for members of the AU community to Bin It to Win It, and handing out prizes to those caught recycling.
Recycling Tip: Use the green and blue bins throughout campus for paper, cardboard, glass, metal, and plastic, and see our guide to less common items to find out where on campus you can recycle everything from cell phones and batteries to plastic bags and clothing.
