Other Recycling Streams



Faculty and Staff in VCU Offices:

  • If your office has batteries, light bulbs or small, broken electronics that need to be recycled, please contact your building manager for your zone's pick up date and location.
  • VCU faculty and staff can recycle their printer cartridges through the following methods:
    • Place your used cartridges back in the original box. The vendor will pick up used printer cartridges when dropping off new orders.
  • All university purchased property, from furniture, electronics, unused office supplies, etc. must be processed through VCU Surplus Property. More information on this process can be found here.


Students in VCU Residence Halls:

Ask your RA or contact your Residence Hall director for more information on e-cycling. 


Textile Recycling  

In 2013, VCU Fashion Associate Chair Kim Guthrie, contacted the Office of Sustainability for help recycling scrap and excess fabric left over from student projects. This partnership was the first and is still one of only a few fashion school textile recycling programs in the country.

Since that time, the office has partnered with VCU Fashion to recycle over 3,000 lbs of textiles that would otherwise be sent to the landfill!
