Office paper is collected throughout the campus in central locations in departments and buildings, and in residence halls. The recycling team visits buildings weekly to collect the office paper. Office paper from Florida State is processed and baled in our facility, before sending to a local recycler. Ultimately the paper will be reused to form new paper products, such as print paper, newsprint, or paper towels. When doing an online request, make sure that you specify these are BAGS OF SHREDED PAPER
Office paper recycling has improved from 38 tons in 2000-2001 to 227.60 tons in 2016-2017. Since 2001, over $134,000 in landfill fees have been avoided due to our paper recycling efforts. Over 3750 tons of office paper has been recycled during this time.
Have a large volume of paper recycling? Request a temporary bin through our Office Clean Out Guide page.
