Texas State participating
in recycling competition
Texas State University-San Marcos will be taking part in RecycleMania 2011, a recycling competition among universities nationwide. The goal: Collect the most recyclable items between Jan. 23 and April 2.
RecycleMania promotes recycling and waste management awareness by encouraging campuses to reduce, reuse, and recycle. This year’s competition includes paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum and recycled cell phones.
The Texas State Recycling Program is strictly a voluntary effort, but there are outdoor recycling receptacles for plastic bottles and aluminum cans throughout campus, plus indoor recycling receptacles for plastic bottles, aluminum cans and paper. Users are asked to break down cardboard boxes and place behind the roll carts designated for paper, and larger amounts of cardboard or paper can be picked up by the recycling center (512.245.7733, or click on Texas State Recycling website).
The website also has recycling pickup schedules and lists of items that can be recycled through the Texas State Recycling Program.
For more information on RecycleMania 2011, see the Recycle Maniacs website.
