Office Bin Request

Offices should submit requests via ARCHIBUS by filling out a work request and selecting “Recycle” as the type of problem. When filling out this form, please be as detailed as possible. Try to include the type of bin needed, the location where the bin is needed, and any other necessary information.

If you have any questions, please email recycle@utk.edu or call (865) 974-3480.

If you can not submit a request via ARCHIBUS, please fill out the form below.

Request Recycling/Compost Bin or Pick-Up

Temporary recycling bins are available on request to assist in clean outs. They will be removed when emptied, but can be replaced with empty containers upon request also. We encourage you to utilize this service for clean outs so as not to fill the permanent bins, leaving no room for normal custodial paper collection.

If the storage capacity of your building’s recycling containers are consistently not enough, please fill out the form below for “Permanent Bin Request” and please explain your needs. We will do our best to accommodate your needs to facilitate the recycling efforts of your building.
  • Please allow 1-2 business days for bin request to be filled. Please indicate if you need the bins by a specific date.
