Upcoming volunteer and event opportunities

RecycleMania and Norm Logo

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: 

  1. Increase our waste diversion rate from 25% to 28% for the eight weeks. 
  2. 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!
