KU offers recycling and composting services for events taking place on KU Lawrence Campus.

Event recycling is now included in requests for additional trash service. These requests can be placed at facilities.ku.edu.

If you would like to have composting for food service at your next event, please complete a Zero Waste Event Request to tell us about your needs.

If you would like to check the status of an existing compost request or you need to cancel a compost request, please notify us at kurecycling@ku.edu. Thank you for allowing us to help divert waste from your event!
