Recycling & Waste Management

The Facilities Management Recycling Program supports the university wide target of Zero Waste by 2020 by providing recycling services on the campus grounds and in state buildings. Initiated in 1990, the program currently recycles nearly 9 million pounds generated annually by the UCLA community. Find out more information about the Zero Waste goal and progress.

Information about what goes in the bins can be found on the UCLA Recycling Page. Here's a printable version of a sign detailing what goes in the blue bins.
