Trash is collected from indoor and outdoor bins on all three campuses at Lehigh.  It is taken to onsite compactors and is then hauled away to a waste-to-energy plant in Souderton, PA.

Where Do I Put My Trash?

  • Offices and Academic Buildings: Please look for designated black/gray bins in your building.

  • Residence Halls and Greek Houses: Black/gray trash bins can be found in each trash closet in residence halls or outside the hall by the garbage toters.

  • Outdoor Receptacles: Metal trash bins labeled with "trash or waste" can be found throughout Lehigh's campus.

*Note: All trash bins have black trash bags inside of them.
