Recycling Services

UNCW Recycling offers several services to support and compliment campus operations.We will arrange for delivery, set-up, break-down, and pick-up of any equipment necessary to complete your request even if the request falls outside your normal scheduled service day.

For any of these offerings, please use our Recycling Service Request form at least 24 hours in advance


Purge Containers

We have larger, rolling carts available for office moves, retirement, office clean outs, or file  purges. If you are unsure of how many you will need, we can size the job up for you! We can also pick up full containers and drop off empty ones until the job is complete.





Event Management

Recycling is a vital piece to any UNCW event! We have several can options to cover all your needs. We offer optimal can selection and placement to maximize the amount of recycling captured. Together, we can make every event a Gold Talon Event!






Education & Outreach

outreach set up

Have questions about recycling at UNCW? Confused as to what is and isn't recyclable?  You're not the only one! Recycling can be confusing, but we can help. From full presentations to simple signage, we have the educational options to suit your needs. 

Recycling will also be happy to stage a waste characterization for campus offices. Lasting no more than an hour, this is an excellent tool to help faculty, staff, and students  understand exactly what is in their recycle cans. These types of audits also help sort out  what is trash and what is recycling - helping to reduce contamination and increase the  capture of recyclable commodities. 



Recycle Bin Services

We have weekly can service to the majority of buildings on campus. We work diligently to keep the bin areas neat and tidy. If for some reason this is not the case, and it is outside your normal scheduled day, please let us know!

If new or expanded recycling services are required, please reach out to our Recycling Manager for questions and concerns at recycle@uncw.edu.





Student Involvement


Recycling Services gladly welcomes student involvement. Whether volunteering as  an individual or a group, there is always work to be done! We're also excited to  collaborate on class projects or partnerships that include recycling services and  our operations.
