  • Zero Waste Initiative

    No landscape waste created by SHSU Landscape Services enters the waste stream or landfills. All wood less that 10” in diameter is chipped into mulch and leaves are composted. The mulch and compost are used to enhance our campus landscape. Large dimension wood is split into firewood or donated to a local mulch plant. If you are interested in firewood or logs contact the campus urban forester
