Facilities is committed to supporting the Kutztown University campus in its efforts to recycle. The overall quality and effectiveness of the recycling program requires effort and responsibility on the part of all users of recyclable materials.

The University operates a "single stream recycling" program. Under this concept, all recyclable items are collected and placed in exterior building containers at selected buildings on campus. 

Contracted service providers pick up recyclable materials and ensure proper processing. Facilities Business Services coordinates the campus wide waste and recycling contract. Questions or concerns about the single stream recycling program can be referred to the Facilities Work Control Center at x31594 or
