UAB Recycling – Overview
UAB is committed to continue to reduce campus waste and increase recycling on our campus. In 2008 UAB started planning within the Facilities Department to expand the current recycling program from only white office paper and cardboard, #1 & #2 plastic bottles and aluminum cans. In December of 2008 UAB hired a full time Recycling Coordinator to manage the recycling program. In March of 2009 UAB opened a Recycling Center located at 620 11th St. South. The Recycling Center offers a drive thru drop-off service on Mondays from 6:30-8:30am and 4:00-6:00pm. (If the campus is closed on Monday, it will be open the following UAB business day.) This free service is available to the entire UAB community to recycle materials from home. UAB Recycling currently provides all participating UAB buildings with recycling containers and empties the containers at our recycling center.
UAB Recycling also accepts materials at the Drop-Off Center that are not collected campus-wide. For more information, visit this page: http://www.fab.uab.edu/other%20files/recycling%20brochure.pdf
