Javelina Recycling

Recycling has grown steadily since 2010, when students petitioned for a recycling program at the Earth Day Fair. In collaboration with the City of Kingsville, a commercial truck was acquired and a student Recycling Crew established. Watch for the truck on campus – you can’t miss it!

Did you know? “Paper is the biggest form of waste that comes from schools? Every ton, or 220,000 sheets, of paper that is recycled saves approximately seventeen trees. The average school tosses [into the landfill] thirty-eight tons of paper per year, or more than 8 million sheets!” (the green book, 2007)
