At Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, our purpose is to provide a service that will achieve waste reduction and promote stewardship of a sustainable campus. Our recycling department and its efforts are made up of students, faculty and staff.
Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment, to combat this issue we maintain interior and exterior recycling receptacles, provide shredding services and utilize a personalized pick up operation. Our landscape operation focuses on “zero waste” through the initiatives of composting and mulching material collected throughout campus. We are actively providing methods and resources to everyone associated with SHSU to bring about a campus culture of sustainability.
