Environmental stewardship, preservation, and sustainability are important in SNR. We participate in recycling and energy conservation programs.

Reuse

Unwanted equipment, books, etc., are to be reused within the department whenever possible. If we cannot find a new use and the item was purchased with University funds, it must be sent to Inventory. Complete the Surplus Equipment Pickup form, and send to Inventory Coordinator.

Recycle

Hardin Hall is participating in the Recycling Renovation Pilot Project. Full-service All in the Hall stations are located in lobbies, hallways and near conference and classrooms throughout Hardin Hall. Full-service Office Paper only stations are located at each copy machine. You are responsible for taking the landfill (garbage) and recyclable materials that you generate to a full-service station.

You can have self-service landfill (garbage) and recycling containers in your offices, work areas and labs. UNL Custodial Services will not provide any service to these containers. You will service them yourself by taking the materials you generated to one of the stations. Graduate students can contact the Nebraska Maps & More Store to request containers for their workstations. A number of self-service containers are available on the dock for large recycling projects. Secure, locked containers are located in the basement tower for material to be shredded prior to recycling.

Most waste items commonly produced at UNL are accepted in the stations. Instructional signage is located at each station, see SNR's graphic. The stations accept paper, plastic & aluminum, flattened cardboard (place behind station) and landfill (garbage). Items should be clean, dry, and free of food or other non-recyclable waste. UNL Custodial Services staff will monitor the full-service stations, if a container is full you should contact the UNL Facilities Service Desk by calling (402) 472-1550.
