Recycling Guidelines

Recycling operations at Clemson are managed through University Facilities (Clemson Recycling Services) for all academic and general buildings, through Housing and Dining (now part of University Facilities) for residence halls and dining halls, and through Athletics for athletics buildings.

Housing and Dining's team of recycling staff manages bins, signage, and collections (see the Housing and Dining section). The collected recyclables are brought to Kite Hill and processed with the rest of the campus’s recycling.

Athletics cooperates with Facilities to manage their recycling, especially for home football games.
