In 2010, Student Government Association (SGA) initiated a Blue Bin Recycling Program that funded the purchase of 50 large 4-container blue bins and 60 single bins to distribute across campus.
In 2012, another effort to improve recycling rates, considered Phase I, was approved. This funded the purchase of 300 7-gallon and 100 10.3-gallon blue recycling bins. The smaller bins were given to students living in the residence halls on main campus and the students living in the West Campus apartments. The larger bins are located in the hallways, lobby, and offices of the academic buildings, targeting high-traffic areas.
Phase II of the program funded an additional 350 recycling bins, which were mostly distributed to faculty and staff. New signage is displayed at the West Campus Recycling Center informing students on the accepted recyclables.
Phase III provided the campus with 300 7-gallon bins and 300 10-gallon bins, as well as promotional posters and decals.
