The Texas State Recycling Program provides recycling services for all students, faculty, and staff of the University. Indoor and outdoor receptacles are located throughout campus, offering a convenient way for everyone to do their part in helping the environment. There is also a drop-off facility at the recycling center if you choose to bring your own recyclables. Currently, the Recycling Program is in efforts to heighten on-campus recycling awareness through various campaigns and special events.

Mario Garza oversees the Waste Management portion of the Recycling Program and coordinates the servicing schedules for all waste hauling of university compactors (including dining hall compactors), dumpsters and roll-off dumpsters. He also oversees the Waste Management contract. Waste Management and recycling go hand-in-hand so the programs are combined. There are substantial savings on waste hauling costs by not land filling all the material that is recycled. Our compactor systems compact at a 3:1 ratio. If the recycled material were disposed of loosely, it would triple in volume and in cost. Provided through the waste hauling contractor are various compactors and roll-off dumpsters of different sizes.
