-------- HOW?? ---------
Residence Hall Recycling - We field special efforts during student MOVE IN that collect castoffs and huge additional recyclable loads, some donated to local non-profitable entities and charities.
- Cardboard Recycling (Fall Semester Move In) - In 2002, the TAMU Recycling Program kicked off its first pilot residence hall recycling program. Since then seven additional halls have become a part of the program.
- Donation Drive (Move Out) - The Heart of Texas Goodwill Industries and the Texas A&M Residence Halls have joined forces to make it easy to convenient for residents to recycle their gently used items. Donation trailers will be placed at two locations on campus during move-out to accept clothing, shoes, small furniture items, etc.
- Aluminum Cans - All halls have the option of collecting aluminum cans. They are collected and taken to a local recycling center.
- Mixed paper, newspaper, ink cartridges - Eleven halls participate in this campus recycling program sponsored by TAMU Physical Plant Recycling Center.
