Are you Ready to Recycle? 

If you live within the city limits of Milledgeville, the best option for your home recycling needs is to contact the City and ask them to provide you with one or more recycling bins, which are collected at the street on alternating Thursdays.  Alternately, you can take you materials to one of several Baldwin County drop off locations.


On campus, there are several volunteer recycling efforts that provide collection of white paper and other items.  Some Residence Halls have collection sites, including Adams Hall, Bell Hall, Foundation Hall, Napier Hall, Parkhurst Hall, and Sanford Hall.  Materials deposited at these sites are taken by student volunteers to the County Drop-Off sites.
