Volunteers for a clean up day

Volunteers gathered on a chilly day to clean up leaves and trash around the containers!

Thank you for recycling!

Due to the success of our partnership with the University and our new location, members of the community are now welcome to drop off their recycling at any time throughout the month.

  • The bins are unmonitored (except for the the TAMUC Police Department Cameras)!

  • The success of our program is dependent on everyone. So, if you have questions about allowable items or if you see issues that need to be addressed, such as trash dumping or bins that need to be emptied, please send an email to
