UW Recycling is pleased to provide this A-Z List to help the Seattle campus make decisions about materials. Please see the links below for information about areas not serviced by UW Recycling:
- Leased Buildings
- Housing and Food Services Buildings
- UW Medical Center Facilities
- Harborview Medical Center
Be sure to consult the UW Records Retention Schedule before disposing of any records (documents, photographs, slides, audiotapes, videotapes, CDs/DVDs, etc.) Also, any items purchased with University funds that are no longer needed, no matter the condition, must be transferred to UW Surplus.
Remember that UW has its own contracts with various solid waste and recycling vendors that are separate from those at private residences or other businesses within the City of Seattle.
