Recycling at Pace University

In your office

Please use the blue desk side container to collect your paper recyclables (white paper, colored paper, newspaper, magazines, books, cardboard) When your blue desk side container is full it is your responsibility to empty it in one of the recycling stations located in each building. The containers are clearly marked for co-mingles (metal, glass and plastic), paper and trash. If you are missing a blue recycle container or can’t locate a recycle station, contact us at If you sometimes enjoy a bottle of water or soda at your desk please dispose of the container at one of the recycling stations.
