Send an email to: Recycle@unm.edu if you have any Recycling questions.

The Recycling Department helps to protect the UNM and New Mexico environment by diverting recyclable materials from landfill and ensuring diverted materials are beneficially reused.  We collect potentially recyclable materials such as paper, aluminum cans/plastic bottles/glass bottles/tin cans, cardboard, CDs/DVDs, scrap metal, wooden pallets, etc. from UNM campus facilities and store or process the materials for off-site reclamation.

UNM Recycling is committed to helping keep New Mexico the beautiful place it is naturally.  The act of recycling is a positive way to help keep our environment healthy.  We encourage students, faculty and staff to participate in recycling at UNM and to tell others about it as well.

We are constantly looking for new materials to recycle and new ways to recycle what we already collect from the campus.  If you have ideas and want to help, please contact Scott George at 277-0842 or recycle@unm.edu.
