NOTE: Trash and recyclable materials are collected from all buildings on both campuses daily.

However, FMS Custodial Services does not collect empty lab chemical bottles or containers.  (See below for more information about hazardous waste disposal.)

Blue recycling bins for white paper have been strategically placed throughout both the UPC and the HSC campuses.

If your on-campus office, classroom, break room, etc. does not have a blue recycling bin, call the CRC to request one.

  • Aluminum cans and bottles
  • Cardboard
  • Colored paper
  • Shipping packaging (e.g., Styrofoam, popcorn, peanuts, etc.)
  • White paper

If you have questions regarding the removal of large or unusual trash items (i.e., lumber, bricks, glass, etc.), please contact the Customer Resource Center (CRC) for your campus to schedule a special pick up:

University Park Campus – (213) 740-6833
Health Sciences Campus – (323) 224-7001
