Facilities Recycling Programs

Your Facilities department is at the forefront of environmental compliance. Not only do we follow EPA /TCEQ guidelines in the disposal of the wastes generated here on campus, we have also partnered with Quest Resource Management Group to bring the campus some pretty remarkable recycling opportunities.

During the semesters, Facilities recycling-student workers remove recyclables from campus buildings, & campus student housing.
