Sustainability in Broward Campuses
Recycling Programs
Published Fall 2008
FAU's Davie and Fort Lauderdale Campuses have been working in partnership with Broward College and the City of Fort Lauderdale to implement a full scale recycling program.

On the Fort Lauderdale Campus, the number of trash dumpster pickups has been cut in half through paper and cardboard recycling.

As of November 1, 2008, the Davie Campus will also add paper recycling to its efforts. We need your participation to make FAU Broward more sustainable. Please do your part and encourage others to participate. If you have any questions, please contact Reid Morgan at 954-762-5040. Here are the specifics:


Mixed paper will be picked up weekly from a white cardboard office receptacle or a blue plastic workroom bin. Mixed paper includes:

  • Magazines/catalogues
  • Phone books
  • Home/office/shredded paper
  • Computer paper
  • Junk mail/brochures
  • Newspapers/newsletters
  • Clean cereal/food packaging
  • Holiday/brown wrapping paper
  • Envelopes (all colors and types)

Cardboard boxes can be left in the hall outside the office or workspace door for the custodial staff to collect them. For pickup of large amounts of cardboard, call 954-762-5040.

Reid MorganCans and bottles should be placed in the blue plastic receptacles with green lids and round holes. Cans and bottles include:

  • Soda cans
  • Soup or food cans, rinsed out
  • Water bottles with cap removed
  • Glass bottles of any color, rinsed out and with cap removed

Toner and ink jet cartridges, drums, fusers, transfer kits and cell phones can be marked "recycle" and placed in campus outgoing mail for pickup.
