At UMD, we're committed to reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting to cut the amount of waste our campus sends to the landfill.
Right Thing, Right Bin
- To request a recycling bin for your area, please email [email protected] or call 218-726-8262.
Some things can't go in your regular recycling bin -- check this list to find out what to do with special items.
Waste Audits & Assessments
In order to measure our progress towards proper sorting and waste diversion, waste audits and assessments are periodically performed.
Duluth Compost offers options for residential pickup.
MN Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) & Minnesota Materials Exchange
The Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) is a grant funded, confidential, environmental outreach and assistance program for businesses and organizations throughout Minnesota. MnTAP works to improve public health and the environment by preventing pollution at the source, optimizing use of resources, and reducing energy use and costs. Our main focus areas are energy, water, waste, and chemicals.
The Minnesota Materials Exchange is a reuse platform operated out of the Twin Cities campus. It has been around since 1990, and operates to serve as a place for Minnesota businesses, industry, non-profits, and institutions to post items they no longer want, need, or use.
