Why We Recycle
As Christians, we are called to love and protect God’s creation. George Fox University is dedicated to reducing the amount of trash that ends up in public landfills. You can help us by recycling. Please be sure to place the appropriate materials in the correct container.
A single incorrect item can cause a whole load of recyclables to be rejected and dumped into a landfill.
Where We Recycle
- Recycle at red outdoor comingle bins located throughout campus, usually next to the trash bins
- Dorms have blue recycling centers located in the main lobby or basement
- Recycle glass behind Bon Appetit by the loading docks
