Recycling is often one of the first environmental behaviors people are aware of. Still, a significant portion of the trash sent to the landfill from campus could be recycled or composted.
UT Austin has set the goal of becoming a Zero Waste Campus by 2020. Achieving this goal is a collaborative effort, including Resource Recovery leading Zero Waste Workplace, as well as Texas Athletics, Housing and Dining, and Surplus Property.
We encourage all students, staff and faculty to get involved: recycle right and look for composting options.
