Instead of throwing it away, recycle. That is what Texas A&M University students were encouraged to do Thursday during an educational event on campus.
For about six years, representatives from Bryan and College Station, as well as the university have educated students on the importance of recycling and other environmental issues.
"You get to learn about all the programs whether it be College Station, A&M, Bryan, the county, everyone's here, so you get to learn from all different organizations," Dawn Self with the City of College Station said.
Self says recycling can save energy, reduce air pollution, save natural resources, and save landfill space.
