Have something you want to get rid of now?

Saint Louis University is dedicated to keeping hazardous materials from entering landfills.

Space is provided at Earhart Hall for the storage of larger recyclable items. In addition, Facilities Services offers an "anything with a cord" annual e-recycling drive that is open to the SLU campuses and St. Louis community to dispose of broken/unwanted electronics, appliances, etc. in a more environmentally friendly manner.
