Centralized Collection

Centralized collection is important to the success of recycling at ECU. Thousands of bins are located throughout the university, placed as conveniently as possible inside each building. Recyclable materials are most recoverable and marketable when placed in their proper containers. Please refer to the chart below for tips on how to recycle.

A link to a printable chart is located here.
