Go Green Fair Friday to launch single-stream recycling
By Rosanne Fohn
The UT Health Science Center San Antonio will implement single-stream recycling throughout the Long Campus beginning Friday, April 19, the day of the Go Green Fair.
Go Green Fair
At the Go Green Fair, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Lecture Hall Commons, you can learn how to help implement the new recycling program, and how to conserve energy, protect the environment, grow healthy plants and sign up to carpool to work.
Single-stream recycling program
Single-stream recycling was tested in the Briscoe Library and School of Medicine. Now it will be implemented across the Long Campus. Plans are being made to bring single-stream recycling to the Greehey Academic & Research Campus and the Texas Research Park in the future.
Developed by the Green Initiatives Committee, the plan calls for everyone to save recyclable items at their desks and then bring them to the blue roll-away containers conveniently located on each floor of most Long Campus buildings.
Please do not place confidential or HIPPA-protected materials in recycling containers.
“The UT System Board of Regents Policy, UTS169, states, ‘Each institution will record and monitor annual waste and recycling quantities, implement procedures to reduce campus waste and set a goal to increase campus recycling each year,” said Michael Black, M.B.A., senior executive vice president and chief operating officer.
