Loyola Recycling schedules collection of large metal items

November 13, 2009

Next week, Loyola University New Orleans will offer recycling of large metal items for two days on main campus in an effort to increase environmental awareness and sustainability. The recycling dates are Nov. 19 and 20, during which time aluminum, steel, iron, brass, lead and copper items will be accepted.

Loyola Recycling arranged the annual pick up of metal material with All Scrap Metals, which will provide a large debris container at the physics loading dock behind Monroe Hall to remove recyclable items.

Types of items that can be collected include insulated or non-insulated copper wire, car batteries, metal instrumentation, stoves, exercise equipment, metal shelving, appliances, microwave ovens, refrigerators (Freon removed), air conditioners (Freon removed), water heaters (water removed and a hole drilled into the unit), metal desks, metal chairs and plastic chairs with metal legs.

Managers, department chairs and key personnel should start identifying metal items now that are no longer useful and make preparations to have them taken to the container next week. Individual departments are responsible for taking their materials to the loading dock once the container is in place. Items can only be taken to the loading dock during the two-day period.

For more information about the program, including other acceptable recyclable items, contact Kathy Anzelmo at kfanzelm@loyno.edu or call (504) 865-2215.
