Sustainability

Facilities Management

The department of sustainability works collaboratively with administration, faculty, staff and students to develop, coordinate and promote sustainability initiatives on campus and in the community.

Recycling:

The facilities managed recycle program at UT Tyler reduces the amount of general waste on campus, saves university funds and positively impacts the environment.

Facilities Management utilizes a single stream recycling service provided by the City of Tyler.

The following items are accepted for recycling: 

      • Paper: newspapers, magazines, phone books and copy paper                            
      • Plastic (# 1 and # 2 rinsed, crushed and lids removed – example: water or soda bottles)       
      • Aluminum cans rinsed and crushed
      • Cardboard broken down
      • Glass is not accepted at this time

Each building common area on campus is supplied with a 23 gallon recycle bin. 

10 gallon desk bins are available by request. Please contact Bonnie Davis.

 

If you need assistance please submit a work request or call 903-566-7291.
