Recycling

Recycling Across TTUSD

Our recycling and solid waste reduction programs began in 2010. Since that time, we have successfully implemented programs for all sites leading to cumulative savings of $270,600 through June 2016.

The following materials are recycled at each site throughout the district:

  • paper
  • cardboard
  • hard plastic (detergent bottles & food containers)
  • glass
  • cans

At every site, we have central recycling bins for the following items:

  • printer and ink cartridges
  • batteries
  • small computer waste

TTUSD maintenance staff recycles the following (so don't throw these away):

  • fluorescent light bulbs
  • metal¬†(all kinds)
  • computers¬†
  • printers
  • monitors
  • cell phone
  • microwaves
  • furniture
