Recycling Program

The GVSU Recycling Program was created to allow our campus the opportunity to recycle many commonly used disposable items. This not only keeps materials out of the land fill, but also saves energy and raw materials in the manufacturing of new products. For example, each ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of land fill space, and keeps 60 pounds of pollutants out of the air. The GVSU Recycling Program is part of Facilities Services. Student workers pick up material from recycling stations in public areas on a weekly basis. Custodians empty recycling baskets on a nightly basis or as needed in office areas. The material is brought to the Facilities Service Building and placed in large containers for our vendor partners to pick up and deliver to the Kent County Recycling Center.
