Recycling

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:49 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

Paper

There are small blue bins strategically located around each building, usually near printers and copiers, for office paper recycling. Larger, centrally located roll-off totes are also provided. If your large, centrally located roll-off tote is full, please contact the Office of Facilities and Procurement Management at 296-3144.

Everyone should collect his or her desk related paper recyclables in a separate container from your trash bin. Whenever you have a file room, office, or storage area to clean out, you can call 296-3144 to get one or more large roll-off receptacles.

Not all buildings are able to perform recycling in the same manner as other buildings. If you have specific questions regarding the recycling program for your building, please contact the Office of Facilities and Property Management’s Customer Service Center at 296-3144 for assistance.

Cardboard

Cardboard recycling varies for each building.  If your facility or building does not have access to cardboard recycling, please call the OFPM Customer Service Center at 296-3144 for assistance in obtaining a roll-off container in your loading dock or other appropriate area.

Bottles and Cans

Can and bottle recycling varies for each building and usually depends upon volunteers to collect and transport the recyclables. Sometimes charities provide this service for fund raising purposes. If your building does have can and bottle recycling, receptacles will be located in break rooms and vending areas. If your building or work area has a recycling program for bottles and/or cans, recycling containers specifically made for bottle or can recycling are to be used so they will be easily identifiable and to contain any spillage.

Bottles and cans shall be rinsed out before being placed in the recycling container to prevent the infestation of insects or rodents.

Magazines and Catalogs

Magazine and catalog recycling varies for each building. If your facility or building does not have access to magazine and catalog recycling, please call the OFPM Customer Service Center at 296-3144 for assistance in obtaining a roll off container in your loading dock or other appropriate area.

Newspapers

Newspaper recycling varies for each building. If your facility or building does not have access to newspaper recycling, please call the Customer Service Center at 296-3144 for assistance in obtaining a roll-off container in your loading dock or other appropriate area.
