Recycling and Solid Waste Management

Office Recycle Can Request
Request Green Team for my event Request a recycle bin for my office  

Recycle bin request opens FAMIS. enter your building information, choose "Custodial" where it says "Select the request type" and describe your request. 

Pacific works to divert recyclable and compostable items from the landfill by providing infrastructure and education.  Indoor waste bins are serviced by Custodial staff and outdoor bins are serviced by Grounds staff.  At Pacific, all items in trash cans go to the landfill. If there is too much trash in a bag of recyclables, the entire bag will go to the landfill. It is not sorted. That is why we need your help to sort smart from the start.


Green Team

Green Team is made up of student volunteers who help educate about smart sorting so waste items go to the proper bin during campus events, as well as campus move in and move out

Tiger To-Go

Reduce waste and save money by using the Tiger To-Go program at the DeRosa University Center. Buy one reusable eco-clamshell or coffee cup for $5.00 and exchange it for a clean one or a token when you're done using it. Using the eco-clam will save you $0.50 per meal, and using the reusable coffee cup will save you $0.10 per drink. After 10 meals the eco-clam will have already paid itself off!


WPC Supply Station - Donate office supplies or take what you need! Located at the Wendell Phillips Center outside room 99.
Large surplus items - Procurement Services manages large surplus item collection and distribution. If you need to get rid of a desk, bookshelf, chair or other large item, you can fill out a Surplus Removal Form and send it to


Dugoni School of Dentistry uses electronic forms for timesheets and numerous other previously paper-only documents. As of July 2009, the school's Main Clinic has switched to completely paperless patient records, significantly cutting down on the amount of paper needed to document patient care. In 2017 Stockton campus transitioned to paperless time-sheets and digitized benefits enrollment in 2018.
