There’s no better time than the present to clean! Cleaning your office or living space creates more space and can also help the environment. Columbia University Facilities and Operations 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 – including the Manhattanville campus for the first time – at no cost to you for the recycling, reuse or proper disposal of large, unwanted items. Best of all, Facilities and Operations will separate and recycle your items. That way, when you clean, you "go green."
Contact Environmental Health and Safety for removal or clearance to remove items on this list.
Bring items to be shredded to the Paper Shredding Locations on College Walk near Kent Hall and the Small Square in Manhattanville every day of the event from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. As a reminder, before disposing of administrative records, please refer to the Records Retention and Disposal policies.
NEED HELP MOVING YOUR STUFF?
For a fee, movers will come directly to your office to collect and recycle your unwanted items (available for offices at the Morningside campus only). Contact the Columbia University Facilities Services Center at 212-854-2222 by end of business on Monday, July 9 and mention "Clean + Go Green" to request service.
DONATE YOUR USED BOOKS!
Don't throw your used books away—donate them instead! Bring your used books to the tent at Low Plaza and we will find them a new, happy home.
FIND SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR COLUMBIA'S ARCHIVES?
Help preserve the institutional memory of the University. Contact Columbia University Archives at x4-3786 before disposing of any historical information relevant to the history of the University.
You can help ensure that this year's "Clean + Go Green" program is a success—please spread the word! Should you have any questions about this event or need other facilities-related information, please contact the Facilities Services Center at 212-854-2222.
We look forward to seeing you at Clean + Go Green!
