State agencies are required by the General Statutes to recycle newspaper, office paper, aluminum cans, and glass and plastic bottles. Of course they also have to comply with the statewide landfill bans, including fluorescent lights, pallets, and plastic bottles. Furthermore, agencies are mandated by General Statutes and Executive Order to purchase recycled content goods and services. There is so much opportunity. Let us be your first point of reference.
Citizens can improve North Carolina's environment and its economy by recycling a wide range of products and materials. Recycling prevents pollution, saves energy and resources, and helps sustain more than 15,000 jobs in the state. Find out more about local recycling services and recycling options for specific materials.
NC DEACS has three recycling outreach campaigns – Recycle Guys, RE3.org, and Recycle More NC. Each reaches a different audience with the goal of increasing the commitment to recycling and the collection of more materials for recycling in North Carolina. These campaigns incorporate the principles of social marketing that encourage sustainable behavior change and a lifelong commitment to recycling. The campaigns feature free downloadable artwork, logos and graphics, free promotional materials, access to mascots and more!
