(Nov. 14, 2011) -- For the second year, UTSA will observe America Recycles Day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15. UTSA students, staff, faculty, friends and community members are invited to drop off sensitive paper documents to be shredded and recycled. The drop-off site is adjacent to the Bosque (pron. "bos-kee") Street Garage (formerly the South Parking Garage) on the Main Campus.
And, as always, UTSA community members are encouraged to utilize the recycling barrels around the campuses, where plastic, paper and aluminum can be deposited for recycling. Additionally, remember to put cardboard and paper in blue recycling bins in the hallways of all UTSA buildings.
The recycling program is hosted by the UTSA Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management (EHSRM) with the assistance of UTSA partner GreenStar recycling, which is certified for safe document destruction.
America Recycles Day promotes recycling across the country and is a great opportunity for the UTSA community to help keep the environment clean. The EHSRM mission is to reduce waste and increase recycling on the UTSA campuses.
For more information, visit the UTSA Recycling website.
The annual UTSA Graduate fair gives students an opportunity to meet representatives who can provide the information on admission requirements, fellowship opportunities, and other key information.
