Clean + Go Green Event: December 13th and 14th

With 2012 coming to a close, now is the perfect time to...clean! Cleaning your office or living space creates more space and will help kick-start your new year.

Columbia University Facilities and our partners across campus want to help. As part of our award winning "Clean + Go Green" program, we will make large bins available across campus, at no cost to you, for the recycling, reuse or proper disposal of large unwanted items. Best of all, Facilities will separate and recycle your items. That way, when you clean, you "go green."

WHEN?

* Drop-off hours at all locations are between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. only.  During this time, Facilities staff will be on hand to help with unloading and recycling.

Please note that during past events the shredder truck has filled up quickly; arriving early will help ensure the truck will have space for your items.
