KTTZ-TV's newest episode of Inside Texas Tech goes inside the University Student Housing's growing sustainability and recycling project. Inside Texas Tech airs tonight at 7 p.m. on PBS channel 5.

In this episode Melanie Tatum, Texas Tech University's Assistant Director of Sustainability Housing, tells KTTZ-TV the story of how Texas Tech's sustainability project began, how it continues to grow and benefit, not only the environment, but students as well. 

Through their efforts of promoting sustainability and recycling, University Student Housing has created scholarships of up to $35,000 for students. 

Sustainability Housing has an off-campus recycling facility behind the University Student Housing building available for everyone to take their recyclables.
