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)

Voluntary Compost Bucket Program
Would you like to have compost services as an option in your department break room? Consider requesting a compost bin from Facilities Management! It is suggested that 1 bin is need per 10-15 individuals.
Our green, sealed compost bins are delivered to you upon signing and returning the Voluntary Compost Bucket Program Agreement to firstname.lastname@example.org. On signing the document you are agreeing to service the compost bucket and transport compost from your office to one of our 3 centralized compost drop off locations (specified via email).
Our custodians are NOT responsible for emptying the compost bucket. Once the form has been submitted, you will be contacted by the Recycling Coordinator to determine the drop off time and location, wherein you will also receive a quick 10 minute training on how to use the compost bucket and a list of what is accepted in our compost program.
Work orders can be submitted for assistance or email Glenn Loving.
