Recycling Drop-Off Program

The hours for drop-off are 6:30-8:30 a.m. and 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Mondays. If Monday is a holiday, the center will be open on the next regular workday.

Special Event Recycling

UAB Recycling can provide event boxes, half-gluttons, or even totes for various special events around campus. In the past, we’ve handled concerts both large & small at the Alys Stephens Center, Into the Streets volunteering on the Campus Green, plus numerous student life picnics and get-togethers where cans and/or plastic bottles will be present.

If you will be hosting a special event & your facility doesn’t have recycling containers in the immediate vicinity or need additional ones, please contact Recycling Coordinator Jon Paolone at 205-996-9043 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

In addition to providing the containers, Jon can also provide volunteers to monitor the bins and clean up.
