Facilities Leads Recycling Efforts

MIT’s environmental goals include increasing the rate of recycling in trash as well as larger items. With community support, the Institute’s recycling rate is 49%. MIT is working to increase that rate further because recycling saves money and reduces the environmental impact of waste.

Custodial Services handles daily removal of waste and recycled items in most buildings. Recycling and Solid Waste Management coordinates large trash and recycling removal from buildings. A recycling team routes materials to appropriate disposal areas.

Order Services

To order services from any of the Operations areas in Facilities, go to Service Requests in Atlas

Basic Recycling Services

  • Furniture removal from offices for recycling
  • Pick up of CPUs, monitors, printers or other electronics
  • Delivery and removal of 96 gallon blue totes
  • Replacement recycling and trash containers in offices and labs

There is no cost to MIT DLCs for basic recycling services. If a piece of equipment requires special equipment to remove it, the Recycling Office will work with the customer to hire a rigging service. The DLC will be required to pay for the outside vendor's service. To order recycling services, please fill out the form in Atlas to request a pick up. Pick up or delivery normally takes 3 to 5 days, but may take longer during busier times of the year.
