Plastics, Bottles and Cans Recycling

Florida State University has taken great strides to increase the convenience of recycling plastics, cans and bottles across campus. Most of our outdoor recycling bins are located directly next to trash bins, making it convenient to recycle these items. In departments, cans & bottles bins are frequently in breakroom areas, and some hallways and lobbies. Residence halls on campus also have recycling chutes or bins for cans & bottles.

In 2015, FSU Diverted 62.05 Tons of Materials(Plastic, Cans and Bottles) from the landfill saving $2,264.83 in Tipping Fees.
