UTSA participates in recycling activities all year, which include Recyclemania, Earth Day and America Recycles Day. Our goals are to reduce waste and encourage sensitivity to the environment in our community.
Recyclemania is a friendly competition among colleges and universities to promote these shared goals. UTSA has consistently placed near the top in the annual competition. This year we competed in the Grand Champion category and placed 22nd nationally. Our recycling percentage was 56.621% of all our generated waste. We generated an average of 10.12 pounds of recycled material per person during the 8 week competition! Great job, UTSA!
Earth Day has been an annual event for UTSA students to celebrate the earth and renew our commitment to building a safer, healthier, and cleaner world for all of us. America Recycles Day is the opportunity to encourage the community to adopt recycling practices which lead to a better environment for all.
