UW Recycling provides daily waste and recycling collection for the UW Seattle campus. However, our role extends well beyond just picking up trash. Our staff serve as contract administrators, education and outreach experts, waste diversion innovators and sustainability enthusiasts for the UW Seattle campus.

Collection of compost recycling and solid waste on the Seattle campus is a collaborative effort between UW Recycling and several other departments including Custodial services, Moving & Surplus, Environmental Health & Safety, and Grounds Maintenance.
