Greening Move-In

Welcome! As new students, you'll be receiving a lot of great information over the course of move-in weekend, and the Webster University Recycling program is here to give you some more great information about sustainable and environmental resources at Webster. The Webster University Recycling program is committed to promoting campus sustainability through waste reduction by making recycling convenient and accessible.

We offer all kinds of options for reducing, reusing, repurposing, and recycling throughout the year. On campus, you can find special bins for recycling small electronics and plastic bags, outdoor solar compactors for recycling and landfill waste, and of course, blue bins all around campus for single stream recycling. This year, we'll be at several big events during move-in and New Student Orientation. Ask questions, share your ideas, connect with us on social media, and be part of reducing, reusing, and recycling at Webster!

Got a question during the weekend? Ask any of our recycling student staff members, your Orientation Leader, or your RA! You may also email recycling@webster.edu
