The University of North Dakota recognizes the value to the community and to the nation to recycle resources. It is also committed to protecting natural resources and preventing pollution. The recycling program is a component of the Presidential Campus Climate Commitment.
The recycling program collects all paper types, cardboard, scrap metals, aluminum, glass, printer cartridges, plastic and yard waste. Through waste audits and funding availability a determination is made for recoverable materials. Pick-up service is contracted with a local recycling company. Individuals collect and place recyclables into conveniently located receptacles within the buildings. Containers are labeled and specifications are displayed. University Building Services Technicians empty these containers for pick-up service. Printer cartridges can be sent to Facilities Management Recycling Office, Stop 9032.
The Campus has adopted the Single-Stream recycling methodology which allows for aluminum, glass, paper, cardboard and plastic to be collected in one container. Large volume cardboard, scrap metal and yard waste are recycled separately.
Recycling can save the campus funding resources, by avoiding landfill charges, all while doing our part to reduce our impact on the Environment.
UND Purchases Solar Compactor
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, UND has purchased a BigBelly solar compactor. The unit consists of two receptacles, one for recycling and the other for trash collection. Both are solar powered and equipped with a wireless monitoring device that indicates when they need to be emptied.
The solar compactor units benefit the University by promoting renewable energy, recycling, and sustainability while keeping the campus beautiful.
The compactor is currently located at the south entrance of the Gorecki Alumni Center and is the only solar compactor in North Dakota.
