Recycling on Campus
Jerry Haba is the Director of Facilities and also the Recycling Supervisor. He can be reached at (972)721-5018.
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 Balcones Recycling Inc. to bring the campus some pretty remarkable recycling opportunities.
During the semesters, Facilities recycling-student workers, and Facilities custodial staff remove recyclables from campus buildings, & campus student housing.
