Emory Waste Collection Streams

As part of Emory’s Waste Policy rolled out in January 2018, collection streams across campus have been standardized for all interior and exterior locations.

All major University buildings are equipped with five standardized interior bins to collect: Compost, Plastics and Metals, Mixed Paper, White Paper and Landfill commodities. Exterior bins have been standardized to provide two collection streams: compost and mixed recycling.

There are also designated collection areas in most major buildings for hard-to-recycle materials – glass, packaging Styrofoam, batteries, light bulbs, ink and toner cartridges, and aerosol cans.
