Residence Hall Waste Collection

The links below will allow you to download and print personal copies of our current waste sorting posters:


The Department of Resident Life and Residential Facilities are working to ensure all on-campus students have opportunities to recycle and compost in their residence halls.  Traditional high-rise and low-rise buildings that are serviced by Residential Facilities Housekeeping staff have recycling bins paired with the trash bins throughout the hallways, lounges, and restrooms of the buildings. 

The opportunity to compost has now been expanded to include 32 buildings for the 2019 academic year. The buildings that currently have compost collection available will have bins available in the lounges and restrooms of the building.

Please do not dispose of your recycling or compost in a bag. Only place loose material in the collection bins within your building.

Residence halls with composting opportunities include: Allegany, Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Bel Air, Calvert, Cambridge, Charles, Centreville, Chestertown, Cumberland, Denton, Dorchester, Easton, Elkton, Ellicott, Frederick, Garrett, Hagerstown, Harford, Howard, Kent, LaPlata, Leonardtown, Montgomery, Oakland, Prince Frederick, Prince George’s, St. Mary’s, Talbot, Washington, and Worcester.
