Schedule Recycling Services

There are two collection schedules provided depending on the amount of recyclables generated from the buildings on campus.

1. Route Schedule: this is mainly for those buildings with high product generation. The recycling employees collect up to three times a week from such buildings depending on how fast their containers are filled in a week. See the Route Schedule Map to see if your building is on-route.

2. “Call-in” Schedule: Provided to buildings with low to moderate product generation. The occupants may call Recycling Services whenever their containers need pick up. The numbers to call are (979) 862-2069 or the Recycling Hotline at (979) 845-7777.
