Expanded waste streams coming to a hallway near you
We’ve bin down this road before
New hallway waste bin infrastructure will be installed in 10 buildings at the Fort Garry Campus. The arrival of the bins is part 2 of a multi-phased plan to introduce new three and four-stream waste infrastructure across all buildings at the Fort Garry campus.
Bin rollout will commence in June 2023.
The new hallway waste bins can be found in the following locations:
- Migizii Agamik
- Drake Centre, Asper School of Business
- Allen Building
- Buller Building
- Parker Building
- Biological Sciences
- Robson Hall
- Frank Kennedy Centre
- Extended Education
PPE: Despite the end of UMs mask mandate, PPE recycling bins remain available in our hallways.
Re-Bins: UMs Re-bins have been temporarily removed from University Center and Dafoe Library locations to update the waste streams being collected. Stay tuned!
Re-Shop: UM’s furniture and office supply reuse program, open to staff and students for on and off campus.
Office Organics Collection: Office staff may enroll in UM’s staff led countertop organics collection program. Contact us for details.
