Central Recycling Drop Off Location
Towson University has formed a central recycling drop-off location for commuter students, faculty and staff to quickly and easily drop off large quantities of recyclables. Any standard recyclable (such as paper, plastic, aluminum, glass and cardboard) can be recycled in either of the two purple recycling drop off cubes located in the back corner of lot 14 near Unitas Stadium. The cubes are situated next to the dumpsters in what is the back left corner of the lot, closest to Sheppard Pratt. Commuter students, faculty and staff who do not have recycling at their residences are encouraged to bring their recycling to campus and drop it off at this location on their way to class or work. Lot 14 can be located on the interactive campus map.
Electronics recycling containers are located in the lobby of every campus residence hall. All electronics—from computers to curling irons—can be placed in the containers. Before recycling, remove any batteries in the electronics and recycle them separately in the bins inside the residence hall community centers. For your safety, you should also wipe electronics of any data prior recycling them. When the bins are full, they will be picked up by campus housekeeping and stored for pickup by CDM, an alumni-owned e-cycling provider.
Used non-vehicular batteries can be recycled in specific battery buckets at the locations listed below or mailed to the office of Environmental Health and Safety via campus mail. Please note that batteries should be discharged and/or placed in plastic bags prior to recycling.

Any type of undamaged compact fluorescent light bulb can be recycled in the community centers of every campus residence hall, as well as at the information desk on the second floor of the University Union. Give your bulbs to the attendant any time during operating hours, which are Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to midnight; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.; and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Printer Cartridge Recycling
The university recycles laser and inkjet printer cartridges through the Funding Factory. Each item recycled in the program gives the university points that are used to purchase equipment for the Child Care Center. To recycle a printer cartridge, drop the cartridge in one of the RecycALL plus containers located in every residence hall lobby, or one of the octagon-shaped green and white collection boxes at the locations listed below. If there is not a collection box in your area, contact Leslie, the university's Funding Factory Associate, at 888-883-8237 to have a collection box and free return shipping label mailed to you.
