UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Do you know what can be recycled at UNCG?

Locations for electronic waste recycling are located on the second floor of the EUC by the ATMs, the lobby of Mossman Building, outside of the Office of Sustainability in Moran Commons, and near the entrance of the Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness. The recycling of these materials is especially helpful in reducing the amount of hazardous chemicals that are placed in landfills.

There are also many locations for commingled recycling at different locations around the campus. Items that can be placed within the commingled recycling bins include glass, aluminum, paper, cardboard, plastics, and steel. These bins are in every building. Some are divided into two sides with indication of what waste goes where. Need help sorting out what can and can’t be recycled in UNCG’s commingled collection? Check out the City of Greensboro’s Waste Wizard! UNCG and the City collect the same materials.

A new and exciting component of the waste-reducing efforts on campus has recently made its debut! Plastic bag recycling bins have been placed in the Kaplan Center, Moran Commons, and the EUC!

Last year, thanks to your efforts, UNCG diverted 45 percent of our waste from the landfill! Want to keep up with sustainability on campus? Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @SustainableUNCG
