Texas Recycles Day, a statewide campaign that aims to educate Texans on the environmental and economic benefits of recycling, will be observed in the Quad at Texas State University-San Marcos on Nov. 15.

Organizations from Texas State and the San Marcos community will be present to help celebrate Texas Recycles Day. These groups promote recycling and environmental sustainability. Representatives will provide information, resources and small giveaway items.

The Texas State recycling program encourages everyone to make an effort to recycle, especially on this day. There are indoor and outdoor recycling receptacles for plastics and aluminum throughout campus. Paper bins are located indoors and in most buildings.
