Following County-wide changes, Western Michigan University has moved to Single Stream Recycling! Collection in buildings will remain the same for the time being, although campus dumpsters will be streamlined. The WMU community may notice extra activity during the change-over. 

WMU accepts recycling generated on campus. Off-campus recycling, even if generated by current WMU students and employees, should be managed by the City of Kalamazoo or the area that you live in.
