Welcome to Office of Waste Reduction & Recycling

With a focus on sustainability, the OWRR's mission is to provide an integrated, cost-effective and environmentally sound waste management program for the entire UNCG community. Through departmental collaboration, program development and educational outreach, we aim to foster effective resource use on campus. In achieving this goal, the OWRR will:

  • Manage collection and disposal of all solid waste and recycling on campus
  • Provide educational and technical assistance to staff, faculty, and students
  • Partner with Facility Services staff to bring solid waste to outdoor collection containers
  • Collaborate with all campus entities to achieve long term solutions to challenges
