Special Event Containers


Health Sciences Classroom Services offers special event waste, compost, and recycling containers for catered events in rooms within the Health Sciences, UWMC, South Campus Center and Foege-S building for a fee.

If food or drinks will be served at your event, these containers are required. This is because the existing receptacles found throughout the building are not fit to hold waste from catered events and therefore may not be used.

Food is allowed in all South Campus Center rooms, but is not permitted inside any of the general assignment classrooms in the Health Sciences Building. If your event will have food, you must reserve a space where the catering can be set up outside of the room. Rooms where this is allowed are:

  • A420
  • D209
  • K069
  • T435
  • T439
  • T625
  • T635
  • T639
  • T733

  • T747
  • I132
  • Foege S060
