Recycling in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools
Private Schools

Mecklenburg County can provide private schools with information on setting up a recycling program, recycling posters, and Word document files to produce labels for your recycling bins. Copier paper boxes make great paper recycling bins and 5-gallon buckets can be used for can and bottle recycling bins.


Make your own recycling container

The signs on these bins are Word files and you can modify them to meet your needs. Then they can be printed on full sheet labels or printed on paper, then laminated, and attached to your containers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
If you would like posters, or the Word files for labels, please contact:
