Greek House Recycling

Bring your recyclables to your pickup point by 9 a.m. on Monday (for fraternities) or Thursday (for sororities). Materials should be placed in the designated recycling bins at the location or can be left at the pickup point in your blue recycling bins. If leaving the bins, don’t forget to bring them back inside that afternoon. If the volume you generate merits additional pickups, email Northwestern Recycling or call 847-467-1374.

Each house has been supplied with least two 40-gallon blue recycling containers, which are property of the University. Individual houses are responsible for lost or stolen containers. Additional bins can be purchased through the Office of Sustainability.

Email or call 847-467-1374 for educational materials and signage (bin labels, etc.). Please provide contact information for your house’s Green Chair or Eco-Rep, and he or she will receive educational materials and program updates.
