Trash, Recycling, Hoarding and Purging
Not sure if it's Trash, Recycling or hidden treasure? You've come to the right place.
Trash is emptied once a month.
Remember that the Trash dumpster is not for your personal trash from home.
If a trashcan is full, or near full, please empty it into the dumpster.
If throwing out cups/etc please empty liquid out of it first
If you're not sure if it's trash, ASK! (See "Hoarding and Purging")
Regular recyclables go in the recycling dumpster, NOT THE TRASH
Includes cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, etc. Does not include E-waste
Please flatten all boxes before putting them in the recycling dumpster, it saves tons of space
E-waste (circuit boards, etc) goes in the E-waste container
If the E-waste container is full, contact the Board via email or Slack
Hoarding and Purging
Please keep the following in mind, depending on which activity you're doing...
We can't save everything. If it's only useful to you, maybe you should keep it at your place.
Put it someplace logical, and for the love of cake label it if you can. We don't all know what it is.
If it's useful for a tool/space/etc let the Resource Manager know it's there. They may not know!
Do we have lots of it already? Do we really need more?
One Member's trash is another Member's Treasure.
If you don't know what it is, ASK! Use Slack (#whydowehavethis) with a photo, or ask a Resource Manager
Your organizational system may not be the same as everyone else's. "Unsorted" may actually be sorted...
If you're mid-clean/purge/etc and have to leave it for a bit, let people know. People complain less that way.
Check with a Resource Manager first if you have some awesome idea for helping organize their space
If you need help organizing something, or coming up with a system to hold it, ask!
