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.
We will be launching a new webportal that will connect the environmentally minded groups on campus in one easy to navigate space. Niner Green, the brand, will represent environmentally friendly events, behaviors, and operations at UNC Charlotte. Stay tuned.
