Sensitive Document Shredding — February 13, 2019

As part of RecycleMania, Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management will provide sensitive document shredding services for the UTSA community on Wednesday February 13, 2019, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Bring your documents to the parking lot between the Student Union (HUC) and Ximenes Avenue Garage and slide your documents into the giant dumpster from Republic Services. Shredding will take place at their secured site. You can bring work-related or personal documents from home to shred.

At Downtown Campus and ITC, please box your documents and seal them. EHSRM will make one trip between noon and 1 pm to each location to pick them up. You can also take your boxed and sealed documents to the Downtown Mail Room earlier in the day, and they will store them inside their secured fence.

* Employees must comply with UTSA's Record Retention Schedule, so please only bring documents not covered by this policy.

For any questions, please contact Anastacio Alvarez at 210-452-7252. Please pass this information to all and hope to see you there!

RecycleMania 2019

Recyclemania is a nationwide intercollegiate contest designed to help our universities and communities become better stewards of the environment. The friendly annual competition runs for eight weeks, beginning in February. The school that recycles the most material per capita wins the competition—however, we all win because we achieve a greener environment.

A successful recycling program requires education, promotion, teamwork, and the participation of the entire community. The success of our program at UTSA depends on your cooperation!

Please, before throwing away items, consider those recyclable products that can be disposed of in the blue recycling containers. These include paper, cardboard, plastics, and aluminum cans. Items that go into trash bins include items such as food, liquids, used napkins and facial tissues, coffee grounds, and styrofoam.

Visit our recycling home page for an overview of recycling do’s and don’ts.
