For related information, refer to the UNC-Chapel Hill Design Guidelines, Chapter V: Sections 02475 Trash and Recyclables Collection System, 02870 Site Furnishings, 11170 Waste Handling Equipment, and 12300 Custom Cabinets and Millwork.

It is the responsibility of the project to budget or reserve funds for the equipment and work with OWRR to ensure that the equipment is ordered, shipped and installed prior to occupancy. Trash and cardboard dumpsters, rolloff containers, and walkway containers (Section 02870 Site Furnishings) are examples of the type of equipment for which this needs to happen.

Horizontal compactors are considered part of the building systems.  Compactors are to be included in the project budget, planning, design and requirements (Section 11170 Waste Handling Equipment).

Indoor cabinets may be built by the project or ordered by the project (Section 12300 Custom Millwork and Cabinets).  Funding for the cabinets must either be part of the project budget or reserves.  It is the project’s responsibility to design, order, receive and install the cabinets.

Some equipment such as standard indoor recycling bins and outdoor carts will be provided by OWRR at no charge.

This information supports and supplements information included in the UNC-Chapel Hill Design Guidelines—specifically, Chapter V: Section 02475 A and Section 11170.  Contact Ray Lanier at 919-962-7175 for more information.

General

Giles Horney CabinetsRecycling cabinets are used in public areas where a more formal appearance is needed. These areas include hallways (outside classrooms and auditoriums), lobbies, pre-function areas, lounges and other areas where people congregate.

There are three ways to get these recycling cabinets.

  1. The project can build them to OWRR’s requirements.
  2. They can be built and supplied by UNC-Chapel Hill Carpentry Shop.
  3. The project can order them from a local cabinet maker.

It must also be clear as to how the cabinets will be supplied–ordered from an outside supplier, built by the project, or ordered from the UNC-Chapel Hill carpentry shop. (See installation and notes.)

Reserve Amount

Indoor cabinets may be built by the project or ordered by the project. Funding for the cabinets must either be part of the project budget or reserves. It is the project’s responsibility to design, order, receive and install the cabinets. The project design team must complete this table for custom recycling cabinets and include it in this section along with other information about the cabinet requirements listed in Section 12300

When cabinets are built as part of project

The project must purchase the inside containers for each cabinet. Rubbermaid Brute 32 gallon containers should be used. Note: no lids are needed.

When cabinets are ordered thru the UNC-Chapel Hill Carpentry Shop

OWRR is available to assist with placing the order. OWRR must be notified when the cabinets have arrived so that we can label them and get them on a pick-up schedule.

If the project plans to build cabinets

Contact Facilities Planning Project Manager.

All locations, dimensions, lid openings and finishes must be included in project documents and a copy given to OWRR before construction documents are finalized.

These containers are supplied by OWRR. Contact OWRR to order equipment.
