Small Under-the-Desk Recycling Box, made of Sturdy Cardboard (No Lid) -- For Use at Personal Work Stations
Free campus delivery. Available for MSU use only. Not available to the public.
Conveniently recycle right where you work. Place this box under your desk or nearby your work station and easily divert material from the landfill. Please note, you are responsible for transferring the contents of your Under-the-Desk Personal Box to the corresponding Common Area Intermediate Box or Hallway Bin, as the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes are not serviced by IPF Custodial Staff. When placing your order, select the option for the type of material you want to recycle: Office Paper, Mixed Paper, or Plastic/Metal. View the Campus Recycling Guide for a list of accepted materials for each type of recycling. Consider getting a box for each type if space allows and there is a need.
This Under-the-Desk Personal Recycling Box serves as the first 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 approved locations if they are to be serviced by IPF Custodial Staff.
We suggest utilizing the Under-the-Desk Personal Boxes, and transferring the contents periodically to the Common Area Intermediate Box, then coordinating with colleagues to periodically empty the shared Intermediate Box into the corresponding Hallway Bin. 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.
