Our Programs

Ink and Toner Cartriges(Cartridge World)

Cartridge World collects inkjet and toner cartridges from USF and the university uses it as a fundraiser for the recycling program on campus. USF accepts all types of cartridges. Bins are located in St. Albert's Hall (near the stairs).

Here is how it works:

To learn more about Cartridge World, go to www.cartridgeworldusa.com. Lots of information about recycling cartridges and the benefits is available, as well as the location of stores and fundraising opportunities.

We are officially recycling cell phones with Real Ez Fundraiser. Recycling bins are located at Marian Hall Main Desk and Tower Hall Main Desk. These bins are for all old and discarded cell phones from students, faculty, and staff. The University will receive a refund on all phones.
