The results are in, and UH has again proved its commitment to sustainability. In the actual weights reporting category, UH placed fourth in Texas in recycling and third in waste minimization, right behind some of the state’s leaders in green initiatives.

UH followed the University of Texas at Austin and University of St. Thomas in both competitions, and placed behind Baylor University in the actual weights recycling division. The University of Houston had 20.47 percent of its total waste recycled. In the nation out of 630 participating schools, UH placed 25th in actual weights waste minimization and 100th in actual weights recycling.

“When the results came in this afternoon, I was pleased with them. Obviously I want to be number one in all categories, but this is a good stepping stone toward our goal,” said Billy Garner, Marketing Coordinator for Auxiliary Services.

UH saw more participation than ever this year in their on-campus group competitions where faculty/staff and student organizations signed up to go head-to-head in collecting recyclables to win a trophy and catering credits with UH Dining Services. Over 35,000 pounds were collected in just the on-campus recycling team competition alone. To take a step forward in the national competition next year, UH will need the help of the entire campus community in doing its part to separate their trash and place recyclables in the recycling bins located across the campus.

“I would like to see our percentage go up in waste recycled in the future as well as our standing nationally in waste minimization. Overall this is a great improvement toward UH becoming one of the top leaders in sustainability amongst the nation’s universities,” Garner said.
