Sorting it right

To avoid the contamination of the divertible waste streams (e.g. organics, recycling, etc.), if it is unclear of where to dispose of the material please place it into the garbage stream. If you have questions regarding disposal of bulk waste, confidential shredding, electronic waste, and hazardous waste please visit Other Materials.

Garbage sorting guide

Be aware that sorting waste at home is different than on-campus - UW waste programs accept different items. Please consult this sorting guide when you are unsure if an item can be placed into the garbage stream.
