Keep UTC Beautiful By Recycling!


recycling tonnage through 2017

UTC Mocs recycled 355,614 pounds (177.8 tons) of paper, metal, plastic, aluminum, and techno trash in 2017! 

Since 2002, UTC Mocs have kept 3.6 million pounds of recyclable materials out

of our landfills. Thank you for supporting the Student Green Fee to help

keep our campus green!

What Can Be Recycled?

UTC now has a on-site single-stream recycle dumpster to eliminate daily trips to off-site recycle mills. 

Now you no longer have to worry about separating your recyclables.

Please ensure that you break down cardboard boxes! 

Recycle Techno Trash


Techno Trash is a service provided to the university by GreenDisk that recycles and disposes of electronic waste.  Instead of throwing out old phones, laptops, CDs, or any other electronic device, you can place them in the various techno trash recycling boxes around campus.  

Why can't I just throw electronics in the garbage?

By recycling your techno trash properly, you help protect the environment from the hazardous materials that may leak out of your old devices and into a landfill.  Green Disk destroys any information that may still be on your devices, recycles the parts of the device that can be repurposed, refurbishes items that can be salvaged, and properly discards any hazardous or rejected material.

Instead of letting your old technology accumulate within your office, dorm or home, bring it to the many specially marked techno trash bin locations on campus to recycle!  A complete list of what can be recycled can be found here.
