RECYCLING GUIDELINES

 

Recycling Services operates an integrated waste management program that has greatly reduced the amount of material our college once sent to landfill. For over twenty-five years our Facilities Grounds and Recycling department has provided a comprehensive recycling and source reduction program that processes a wide range of materials. We continue to expand our program and in recent years, our overall trash diversion rate has been over 70%.

SRJC’s Recycling Services provides regular office collection of a wide variety of recyclable materials. We stock bins, provide helpful signage, answer questions and give support to all departments at the Santa Rosa 

Campus. For questions regarding our recycling program, please contact Henry Lankford, Manager of Building and Grounds at (707) 524-4231, or by email, hlankford@santarosa.edu.  

To request additional bins or signage, please submit a facilities request form.
