Upcoming volunteer and event opportunities
This year's RecycleMania competition kicks off February 3rd! RecycleMania is an eight-week recycling competition pitting UNC Charlotte against hundreds of other universities and colleges across the U.S. and Canada. This year, UNC Charlotte has two goals:
- Increase our waste diversion rate from 25% to 28% for the eight weeks.
- Get into the top ten schools for most cans and bottles recycled.
We can do it! Learn more about ways to get involved below. Follow us on social media @unccrecycling to stay up to date on where we stand in the competition!
Caught Green Handed!
Every Wednesday morning, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., get caught recycling on campus and win a prize, including gift cards. Make sure you're always on the lookout for a recycling bin while on campus!
