The Recycling/Surplus/Solid Waste (RSSW) division within Facilities has the responsibility of managing the named programs, plus Lost and Found for the university. Because of the huge, world-wide market reduction in recyclables in 2019, as well as the permanent budget cutbacks to both RSSW operational funds and consequently staff, the Interior Recycling Program for the University of Idaho changed in FY20 to deal with these changes. Interior Recycling is now only picked up on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Building Services staff are monitoring which Recycling Sites need service and sending pickup requests to Recycling for those sites only. Exterior cardboard container emptying will be on an on-call basis as of September 1, 2019, and Building Services personnel will be sending those requests to the RSSW team as well. Others may also request a service pickup as needed by sending in a request to email@example.com. RSSW staff will only be picking up from current, established recycling sites, as listed on our website. For department cleanouts and special pickups, a work order is set up and departments are charged for these additional services. Please provide a specific location when asking for additional services. RSSW continues to provide effective services while using new methods and opportunities to reduce our overall costs for dealing with U of I waste streams. Further changes to the Recycling Program may be forthcoming. The Recycling Division may be reached by dialing 208-885-1715 and leaving a voice mail message if there is no answer.
