At Luther we take our commitments to waste reduction seriously. We do what we can to reduce and reuse before making our way to the third “r” (recycling). Centralized waste infrastructure is located all across campus to make it easy to responsibly dispose of waste.
*Note: Metal items including frying pans, cookie sheets, license plates, stainless steel kitchen items, cast iron skillets, brass items, bikes, electrical cords, electric motors, and wall chargers can be brought to the Winneshiek recycling center but cannot be recycled in Luther roll-offs.
