Large Quantities, Special Pickup, Overflowing Bins, and Shredded Paper
If you have a large quantity or special pickup of materials that need to be collected, notice an overflowing bin that needs to be collected outside of the normal collection schedule, or have bags of shredded paper, please fill out an Online Work Request. Shredded Paper should be bagged. Please do not put bags in or on top of the recycling bins.
Office Move or Clean-Out
KU Recycling can provide your office with recycling totes of various sizes to best suit your needs. Tote sizes available include 18 gal, 32 gal, 65 gal, 95 gal. To request containers, please fill out an Online Work Request and include what size and quantity of totes you will require, and we will schedule a time to drop them off at your designated location. Bins are only provided temporarily. When the totes are full, give us a call and we will pick them up when we visit your building on our normal collection route.
