Special Event Containers for HSB


HSCRS offers special event waste, compost, and recycling containers for catered events in rooms within the Health Sciences, UWMC, 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 not permitted inside any of the general assignment classrooms. 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
  • T739
  • T747
  • I132
  • Foege S060
