Plastic Film Recycling
UNC Green Labs and Fisher Scientific are collecting plastic film at the Thurston Bowles loading dock weekly. Plastic film should be placed neatly on the loading dock before 6 am on Thursdays. Unsightly and contaminated bags will cause the program to be discontinued.
The Freezer Challenge occurs annually! The 2022 Freezer Challenge closes June 30, when all materials are due to My Green Lab. The winning UNC lab is eligible to win a $5,000 rebate for an energy efficient ultra low freezer.
