Recycling & Waste Reduction

Contact UCSF Recycling & Waste Reduction Program for assessment of space. This free assessment will help determine what services or items the program can remove free of charge.

Extra service/bins - Submit Facilities Work Orders -

  • Garbage bins/service - Facilities is not equipped to loan out garbage bins but extra service can be established for your space. Custodial Services prefers that you designate a larger container or room within the space that will have extra service versus the entire suite. Having centralized trash locations will help reduce customer costs. 
  • Recycle bins/service - Extra recycling bins are provided free of charge if used properly. The Recycling & Waste Reduction Program will provide extra containers for temporary use after the work order is received.
