About Waste Reduction & Recycling Department

The Waste Reduction and Recycling Department (WRRD) manages all waste contracts on campus and works with faculty, staff, and students on a daily basis to provide easy and convenient recycling to Auburn University. In 2005 the Recycling Program was established by the Auburn University Facilities Management and Sustainability Initiative and officially became a University Department, under Facilities Management, in 2008.

WRRD manages the Campus Building Recycling program, Game Day Recycling, office clean-outs, toner and ink cartridge recycling, indoor/outdoor event trash and recycling bins, secure document shredding services, and electronic recycling.

Waste reduction and recycling initiatives are also promoted through education and outreach on campus and in the surrounding community. Outreach initiatives encompass events, including America Recycles Day, and community partnerships, such as the East Alabama Recycling Partnership.


The mission of Auburn University's Waste Reduction and Recycling Department is to provide waste reduction opportunities and quality recycling services to campus clients and during special events on the University campus. We strive to be a client focused department, one that is dedicated to promoting our services and educating the campus and surrounding community. Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of waste and effectively manage the lifecycle of current and future resources.
