Students volunteer at Recycling Round-up

Sustainable Community Building — In its continuing commitment to building sustainable local and world community, Richland College partnered with the City of Dallas Sanitation Services to host the citywide Fall 2013 Recycling Round-up on Sept. 21. Citizens in more than 230 cars delivered tons of 27 various types of household, electronic, textile, appliance and packaging items to be recycled and spared from the landfill. Five Garbology/anthropology students, eight Richland Collegiate High School Service Learning students, one Academic & Civic Engagement student and one Rising Star student volunteered to help Facilities Services staff the day-long event.
