Changes to NVC's Recycling Collection
Effective spring 2014, our recycling collection process is changing. Some of the changes won’t be immediately apparent, but the change that will be most evident to everyone is the placement and collection of recycling bins in the buildings on campus.
In an effort to streamline the collection process, the recycling receptacles are being moved out of the classrooms and office/department areas to the main areas of all the buildings on campus. Therefore, recycling bins will no longer be available in classrooms and offices nor will they be picked up or collected from classrooms or individual offices. Large blue recycling totes are being placed on all building floors where recyclable materials can be deposited. We ask that students and employees continue to recycle, but that they take their recyclable materials from the classrooms and offices to the recycling receptacles in the hallway areas. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles and paper recyclables can all be deposited into the same large recycling totes; there is no need to separate bottles, cans and paper, etc. Cardboard should be broken down and placed next to the large totes though, not in them.
If you see someone throwing recyclables in a trashcan, please gently remind them that there are recycling receptacles conveniently located in all the building hallways and main areas.
If you have any questions or concerns about overfilled, missing or broken recycling totes, please contact our Facilities Department at 486-4888 or submit a Service Request Form at this link http://www.alamo.edu/district/facilities/.
So the good news is.. we are still recycling. The important point of the good news is… we all need to take our recycling with us out of the classroom and office and throw it in the large blue recycling totes in the hallways. That’s it, that is the big change and all we really need to do is just take it with us. See in this case…you really can take it with you.
Thank you for continuing to support NVC’s efforts to be an environmentally responsible member of our community!
