For us, recycling and our zero-waste goals at UT are about so much more than simply keeping waste out of the landfill. Our goal is to convert our university into a Zero Waste institution by diverting at least 90% of all waste from the landfill through reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting practices.
In 2018, we composted more than 1,100 tons of food and landscaping waste.
Recycled materials make money for the university! Recycle using campus bins or by visiting our 24/7 public drop-off location.
This is just one of the methods we use to increase awareness of the waste we produce and how to recycle properly, one office at a time.
