UNC-Chapel Hill offers recycling services to all campus offices. The Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling (OWRR) collects recycling from centralized recycling sites in each building. To find your office recycling locations and schedule, please see the Building Recycling Schedules and Locations page.
Contact University Surplus to see if they have any deskside bins in stock or order your deskside bin from Staples using item number 758215.
- Bin: Item Number #815622
- Bottles/Cans Lid: Item Number #860345
- Mixed Paper Lid: Item Number #39796
Once your Slim Jim arrives, please submit a work order to OWRR in order to have the container labeled and added to the service schedule. Slim Jim containers hold less material than our standard 35-gallon barrels (one barrel = two Slim Jim containers). Please consider the capacity needs of your office as we cannot increase the recycling service.
- Remove all items from cardboard
- Break it down or flatten
- Place it next to the closest recycling station
Housekeeping is responsible for removing cardboard from the buildings, not OWRR. If you have a buildup of cardboard in an area, please submit a work order to Housekeeping.
