Recycling

Eastern Oregon University has an active recycling program. We currently handle office paper, newspapers, magazines, cardboard and refundable/non-refundable cans and bottles.  These items are collected in recycling bins around campus.

The campus shredding service occurs the first Wednesday of every month.  The custodial department is happy to assist with shredding pick up and new shred bag delivery. Please use our service request desk to schedule shredding assistance.
