UNC Charlotte Recycles!Welcome to the UNC Charlotte Recycles website.  Started by students in 1990, recycling began with a can collection program.  Not long afterwards, Witherspoon Hall became the first residence hall to take part.  Since then we have grown to 16 employees and now recycle over 40 items.  We also operate a composting program, an award winning construction and demolition recycling / re-use program, and environmental education on and off campus.

For recycling special requests or if you have questions, contact Kelly Freshcorn at or call 7-0607.

Check out our Facebook Page for information about upcoming events and fun recycling facts. Learn about our April Earth Month events on our News and Events Page
