UT Recycling’s goal is to convert the University of Tennessee into a Zero Waste institution by diverting 90% (or more) of all waste from the landfill through reduction, reuse, recycling and composting practices.


If you have questions about whether or not something you would like to bring to the drop off is recyclable, email recycle@utk.edu or call (865) 974-3480.
