The University of Texas at San Antonio has begun its countdown for Recyclemania 2017the nationwide college and university recycling competition meant to bring awareness to recycling and waste reduction. As in past years, UTSA will be going up against some of the largest schools in the nation as well as Texas colleges. Early warm-up competition starts January 22 - February 5, 2017. Then, it's off to what we hope will be another great year for our 2017 competition which will start on Sunday February 5, 2017 and goes through Saturday April 1, 2017.
Sponsored by the UTSA Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management, UTSA's success on Recyclemania needs the help of our community by ensuring we all do our part to recycle. We believe our university has the best team of students, faculty, and staff which will enable us to place high in the Recyclemania competition and we are asking for everyone's help and cooperation. So don't forget to do your Environmental Duty and RECYCLE.
This will be our 9th year participating in Recyclemania. Our goal this year will be to place in the top 10%. Our 2016 placement was 34th out of 205 colleges and universities. REMEMBER: We are UTSA Roadrunners taking responsibility to clean the environment for a better future. Let's recycle together, Roadrunners!
Mark your calendar: no cost paper document shredding service! As part of Recyclemania, Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management will be providing paper document shredding on February 17, 2017 by our trash and recycling company to shred sensitive documents. This shredding service is available to all of the UTSA community and will be held in the HUC parking lot, between HUC and Ximenes Garage, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
For Downtown Campus and ITC departments, please box your documents and seal them, and we will make one trip to each location to pick them up between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. If you prefer to take your sensitive documents early and not miss the pickup, you can deliver them to DT Mail Room and they will store them inside their secured fence. Please take advantage of this opportunity to shred sensitive documents either from work or home.
Please contact Anastacio Alvarez at (210) 452-7252 for additional information.
