Green Plastic Recycling Bin with Lid -- for use at Hallway Waste Station
Requires approval by MSU Recycling before placement. Free campus delivery. Available for MSU use only. Not available to the public.
These bins are designed to be placed at hallway waste stations. For shared office suites/work spaces see the Common Area Intermediate Boxes. For individual work stations, see the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes.
This Hallway Recycling Bin serves as the final point in the three stage approach to convenient recycling. Stage 1) Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Boxes placed at individual work stations. Stage 2) Common Area Intermediate Boxes in shared spaces within the office suite/work area. Stage 3) Hallway Recycling Bins located in public spaces, which must be placed in pre-approved locations.
We suggest utilizing the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes for recycling at personal work stations, transferring the contents periodically to the Common Area Intermediate Boxes, then coordinating with colleagues to periodically empty the shared Intermediate Box into the corresponding Hallway Bins. While it might seem excessive at first, and may not be necessary in all locations, making recycling accessible and convenient is a crucial factor in diverting material away from the landfill. If its determined that Intermediate Boxes are not necessary, we encourage simply transferring the contents from Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes into the corresponding Hallway Bin.
