Recycling Guidelines Update

We are half-way through 2017 Recyclemania Tournament, and UTSA continues to perform well above most schools in the contest.

The EHSRM team has updated the recycling guidance to reflect some changes in what is now being accepted by UTSA’s current waste-management vendor. 
Glass and Styrofoam not be put into the blue bins. They are considered trash. 
Paper food containers should be rinsed clean before being placed in the blue bins. 

These steps help UTSA generate the optimal amount of recycling and save money and resources. 

As a reminder, you may want to print the Recycling Flyer and post it by your large blue recycling bins. Let's all aim to recycle at least 10 items each day.
