The University Place drop-off recycling site used by Orange County Solid Waste will no longer be available to residents after Jan. 31, 2022. The property owner is redeveloping the area and has decided not to continue with the month-to-month agreement, said Robert Williams, Orange County Solid Waste Management Director.

Residents can use one of our other staffed recycling sites, including the Eubanks Road Waste and Recycling Center in Chapel Hill, for their recycling disposal needs now and after Jan. 31, 2022.

All dumpsters will be removed from University Place. Anyone caught dumping recycling after the deadline may be fined for illegal dumping.
