Recycling at Northwest

Northwest proudly supports community recycling efforts. We encourage the public to participate in recycling by dropping off plastic containers, aluminum cans, mixed paper, cardboard, and glass at the University Pellet and Recycling Plant 24/7. Located on the 1100 Block of North Country Club Drive (Icon Road).

What Can I Recycle?

Cardboard, Mixed Paper and Boxes: We accept paper, cardboard, empty food and pizza boxes. Please break down large boxes and place them in outside paper recycling dumpster's. (Please remove & discard metal binding from spiral notebooks.)

Plastic, Glass, and Aluminum: Please place empty plastic, glass, and aluminum containers into inside recycling bins. 

  • Plastics - We accept all plastics. Please empty and remove lids. (This helps us sort)
  • Glass - Bottles and Jars only. Remove & discard lids. Rinse container.
  • Aluminum - All drink cans.

Where can I recycle?

There are more than 150 recycling Centers on campus. They can be found in every academic building on campus.

Most campus offices are equipped with totes for collecting recyclables. Each office is responsible for bringing their paper to the outside dumpster's.

  • Paper and cardboard recycling dumpster's are located throughout campus.
  • Mixed Recycling Dumpsters Are Located Outside Every Residence Hall
