Damaged Recycling Bins Undergo Repair

More than 30 of the recycling bins on campus have been damaged, and will soon undergo a facelift to be functional for the start of classes.

These recycling bins have been dented on campus largely by golf carts or other motorized vehicles that navigate the sidewalks.

Rather than be replaced, which is more costly, most of the bins will be repaired. A rubber mallet will fix the dents from the inside, permitting full use of the binsí space once again.

Only about 5 bins will need to be replaced due to irreparable damage.

The University of Houston is proud to promote a green campus, and encourages all Cougars to make use of these recycling bins.
