Facilities Recycling Programs

Your Facilities department is committed to 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.
