Sustainable Community Building–Richland College and the City of Dallas Sanitation Services partnered again to host the city’s annual Fall Recycling Round-up at Richland College on November 14.  The successful results just released indicate that the Richland College site assisted 512 participants in collecting 40,782 pounds of recycled materials, including electronic items, small appliances, auto and alkaline batteries, cardboard, cooking oil, Styrofoam, plastic bags, packaging, tires, and paper for recycling.  In its continuing commitment to sustainable practices and community outreach, Richland College and its volunteers collaborate with the city of Dallas to host this recycle activity each fall and spring to spare unnecessary waste from landfills.
