Blue Can-Cart

Delivery of Large Can Carts for Fine White Paper Recycling

Containers

Materials Handlers will delivery and pick-up large, wheeled, blue cart-style recycling bins on Wednesdays - the designated day for provision of this service. Both delivery of empty bins and pick-up of full bins will be on a Wednesday. Whenever possible please refrain from leaving recycling carts in a Hallway or thoroughfares. These bins may seriously restrict people's movement in the event of an emergency. If you are going to have a bin for more than a day, find a room where the bin can be stored when it is full or not in use.

Recycling Hardcover Books and Binders

The Sustainability Office can assist with recycling empty used binders and used text books. Hard cover books and contents of binders can only be recycled as fine paper if the covers and binders are removed. If you have too many hardcover books or do not wish to remove the covers please contact the recycling coordinator recycle@pr.uoguelph.ca and they will coordinate a different collection method for you.

Materials Handling regular service hours are Monday to Friday 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. Services may be acquired outside of regular hours but will include an after-hours surcharge.
