We recycle at UNCWRecycling is a state-mandated program to reduce waste and minimize impact on local landfills. But most of all, it is important for all of us to do! To be successful, every faculty, student and staff member needs to join the recycling team, and learn the three R's: Recycle, Re-use, and Reduce!

Recycle Properly: Recycled products are only recoverable when they are sorted properly.

Where Can I Recycle?

Drop off recyclables anytime at the Central Recycling depot located on Lionfish Drive at the intersection of Lionfish and Plyler Drives. UNCW Recycling Depot is open to all University members as well as the public.

Bins and Receptacles are also located in all university buildings and residence halls.

Staffed Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

What Can I Recycle?

Plastic Bottles, glass bottles, aluminum can, copier and computer paper (all sizes and colors), newsprint, magazines, lead-acid batteries, cardboard and pasteboard (please break down boxes), and electronics and wire (in the e-recycling bin at the Depot)

Tips: Other Ways to Recycle

  • Purchase products made of recycled materials
  • Print documents on both sides - better yet, use e-mails for drafts and inter-office exchanges!
  • File your e-mails electronically rather than printing them
  • Bicycle, carpool, or use the free Seahawk Shuttle bus instead of driving
  • Use re-usable boxes, or a bandana or handy towel to wrap gifts
  • Pack your lunch in re-usable containers
  • At home, compost or recycle yard waste
  • Share magazine subscriptions with neighbors, schools or child-care programs
  • Donate unused clothing to community groups
