Personal Recycling at TCC

Recycling Basics

Tarrant County College Southeast Campus has an active recycling program! Do your part by separating trash and recycling into the proper bins. We recycle:

  • Clean, dry paper
  • Cardboard, including boxes
  • Empty plastic bottles
  • Cans

Remember that anything wet or contaminated with food waste should go in the trash. Putting food waste in a recycling bin contaminates the other items, rendering them just trash.

Taking readers on a quick but informative tour of how recycling actually works, Can I Recycle This gives straightforward answers to whether dozens of common household objects can or cannot be recycled, as well as the information you need to make that decision for anything else you encounter.

Trashing the Planet

What can we do to keep garbage from swallowing up Earth? Reducing, reusing, recycling, and upcycling are some of the answers. Learn more about the work of the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Ocean Cleanup Array, the zero waste movement, and the many other government, business, research, and youth efforts working to solve our planet's garbage crisis.

Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine: Sorting out the Recycling System

Recycling brings a balance to our system by managing resources in a loop. But many of us don't know what happens after those items leave our homes. We're confused by inconsistent rules of what we can and can't recycle. This book reveals how we arrived at this state of dysfunction, and what steps we need to employ to be an active participant in strengthening our recycling system.

Reassembling Rubbish

In an innovative analysis of the global trade and traffic in discarded electronics, Lepawsky reframes the question of the "right" thing to do with e-waste, mapping the complex flows of electronic materials. He counters the assumption that e-waste is a post-consumer problem, pointing out that waste occurs at all stages of electronic materials' existence, and calls attention to the under-researched world of reuse and repair.
