Grounds Maintenance – Waste/Streets/Recycling

Solid Waste Removal

The Waste/Streets/Recycling Group in Grounds manages waste handling from dumpsters, outdoor trash cans, and compactors.

Work orders can be submitted for assistance or email Jason Thomson.


Liberty University has a goal to increase its waste diversion rate to 40% by 2022.  Liberty is currently transitioning from single stream recycling to collecting materials through a dual stream process, meaning that recyclables are sorted at the point of disposal by the consumer.  This helps reduce contamination and increases the value of the recycled product.

Look for recycling opportunities on campus in your residential halls, DeMoss Hall, the Montview Student Union, Green Hall, and offices.

Please recycle the following in appropriate containers:
  • Mixed Paper: Office paper, mail, shredded paper, newspaper, boxes, sticky notes (Staples are fine)
  • Plastic: Plastic bottles, jugs, cups, and containers with minimal food contamination (Lids are fine)
  • Cans: Aluminum, tin, & steel containers
  • Cardboard: Please break down cardboard
Please DO NOT put in recycling containers:
  • Glass of any sort (This product is not accepted at this time)
  • Pizza boxes (If available, please place in pizza box recycling containers)
  • Paper Towels/ Tissues (These are compostable, but NOT recyclable)
  • Straws
  • Styrofoam
  • Plastic film, bags, and bubble wrap (You may take these to grocery stores who are equipped to process this material)
  • Electronics
  • Food Waste
  • Wrappers of any sort
  • Any containers with excessive food or grease contamination
