Recycling FAQ's Answers
Where do I shred paper? WKU has a contract with Landshark Shredding. WKU Recycling does not shred paper. Landshark will provide a bin and pick-up and recycle shredded material. 
I’ve got a lot of cardboard on my floor that needs to be broken down and recycled, who does that? YOU are responsible for breaking down your cardboard on a regular basis and your ESA’s bring your recycling to the bins outside. If you have an unusual amount of cardboard or recycling that needs to be taken away, please email elizabeth.gafford@wku.edu and we will send a student crew member if available.
I don’t break down or empty my cardboard when I recycle, is that a big deal? YES. When cardboard boxes are piled high and filled with Styrofoam and other packing materials, a 10-minute stop becomes a 45-minute stop. It is so important to put only broken down empty boxes for the crew to pick up so we can service as many buildings as possible each day.
I need to clean out an office but we’ve got enough paper to fill my office recycling bin, where should I put the extra paper? WKU Recycling is happy to bring you a large bin to your office for you to use for your project. Simply email elizabeth.gafford@wku.edu when you need a bin and another email when it is full.
