Lehigh is implementing innovative trash and recycling operational changes. Recently, LU Facilities deployed 27 sets of Bigbelly solar compacting trash and recycling bins. These bins hold more than a traditional bin and send a notification when they are full. These changes are increasing efficiency, improving our waste diversion rate, saving money, and building a campus community for the 21st century!
Where Do I Put My Trash?
Trash: Please use the designated black/gray bins labeled with a "trash" sign in your building.
Trash: Please use the designated black/gray bins labeled with a "trash" sign in each waste closet in residence halls or outside the hall/house by the toters.
Trash: Please use the designated black metal trash bins, labeled "trash or waste" and the Bigbelly solar compacting trash bins, labeled "trash" that can be found throughout Lehigh's campus.
