Sorting  Mis-directed mail you may receive should be returned through any Mail Services drop box on campus.  Mail for an employee who has moved on should go to their replacement or note “return to sender” and place in drop box.

Outgoing Mail Outgoing US, International & interdepartmental (including interlibrary) mail will now need to go into a Mail Services drop box.  Smaller packages will fit into the drop box as well.  See the attached Mails Services web site for box locations

US & International Mail Will require the libraries postage account #1607563 to be written in the top right corner of the envelope or package.  When you have multiple envelopes a post-it-note secured to all outgoing mail with a rubber band will work as well.

Packages Smaller packages will fit into the drop box. For larger packages Mail Services can, pick up and ship most items, see the Mails Services, USPS, FedEx & UPS web links below.

Recycle  
Techno-cycle and toner cartridge bins are located in DMC’s, see the attached Mails Services web site for DMC locations & lock combo.

Books, Journals, etc.  should be placed in desk side recycle bins.  For larger amounts submit a request through Atlas for a “96 gallon recycle totter”.  These are a no charge request.
