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, can and bottle bins are frequently in breakroom areas, some hallways and lobbies. Residence halls on campus also have recycling chutes or bins for cans and bottles.
In 2016-2017 Fiscal Year, FSU Diverted 85.76 Tons of Materials (Plastic, Cans and Bottles) from the landfill saving $3,252.02 in Tipping Fees.
