(Aug. 23, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management (OEHSRM) is conducting a survey about the mini-trashbin program on campus that was implemented a year ago. Your feedback is appreciated!
The roll-out and implementation of the mini-trashbin and recycling program to all of the UTSA Tri-campus community is complete. First introduced in November 2011 at the Plaza Norte Building, the well-received program was voluntarily accepted across the campuses including leased spaces. Cooperation from the faculty, staff and students has been great.
Over the next six weeks, the OEHSRM will reach out to several departments not yet participating with the goal of having them join the program. The new custodial services contract beginning this fall semester does not include trash pick-up services to individual offices, and we want to ensure all departments have been given ample opportunity to get on board.
With high participation in recycling, it is no surprise then that UTSA placed 27th in the USA and Canada in this year's Recyclemania Grand Champion competition division, recycling more than 52 percent of all waste generated on campus. The 128.8 tons of recyclable materials collected during the eight-week competition period is equivalent to a reduction of 631 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, 124 cars off the road or the energy consumption of 55 households, according to the RecycleMania website.
For more information about the mini-trash bin program and recycling, visit the EHSRM website. To schedule a consultation to help your department be a better recycling partner, contact the Recycling team at 210-452-7252 or Richard Garza, UTSA environmental protection and construction safety manager. at 210-458-5808.
The institute will feature a performance from Eva Ybarra, the “Queen of the Accordion.” Manuel Medrano will premiere a documentary on Ybarra’s career. Two people receive free admission with a voucher available here.
