TU is among more than 400 colleges participating in Recyclemania, a nationwide recycling competition that runs through April 2. In the past, TU has topped the list of Oklahoma schools with a national recycling ranking of 102. The university also is among the top 30 universities for waste minimization and corrugated cardboard recycling.
TU’s recycling efforts are some of the best in the American Athletic Conference, and the university hopes to generate a top 100 ranking this year.
University officials encourage all members of the campus community to recycle standard items including old catalogs, cardboard and other materials found in office areas. TU is dedicated to environmentally friendly practices that promote sustainability on campus and beyond.
