Mission Statement

The mission of the WKU Department of Recycling and Surplus is to promote a more sustainable WKU by reducing or eliminating solid waste generation and disposal. We will accomplish this by developing thoughtful purchasing strategies, increasing re-use of materials and equipment, providing convenient and effective opportunities to recycle, and conducting comprehensive outreach and education services.
