Find out how, where, and what to put in landfill on and off campus.


What is considered landfill on campus? 

At Santa Clara University, our main priority to is reduce and divert as much waste as possible. There are very few items, however, that cannot be recycled or composted on campus. Please place the following items in the landfill bins: 
  • Non-paper packaging: Chip bags, candy & energy bar wrappers, condiment packets, and butter wrappers. 
  • Non-SCU disposable containers: Cups & take-out containers acquired off-campus, Styrofoam, and dirty aluminum foil.

Note about recycling energy bar wrappers 

Campus Recreation began collecting energy bar wrappers in 2013 for recycling with Terracycle. The Terracycle collection programs, or brigades, also include writing instruments, paired shoes, and personal beauty products. Bring your wrappers and more to the blue collection bins located in the main lobby of Pat Malley Fitness and Recreation Center.  Learn more
