Recycling for Campus Events

Submit a work order,  or call Facilities Management main office at 253-535-7380. On the work order, please state the intended delivery and removal dates, the materials planned to be recycled, or composted, the number of totes needed, as well as the expected amount of people attending the event. Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance of your event to confirm tote availability.

The Waste Diversion Department can provide a few different recycling, compost, and trash totes for events. For information regarding our various event totes see the chart below.

We encourage campus organizers to order the same number of recycling bins as trash cans so that they can be placed together. By placing trash cans and recycling bins together, recycling will be made much more convenient for guests, encouraging higher levels of recycling.

Need a reminder on what PLU recycles?  For an easy visual guide on which tote your waste goes in check out our Recycling Poster. If you’d rather see the list, see our Recycling Specifications Page.
