Lab Coat and Scrubs Recycling Event

Lab Coat (320x240)
Recycle your old lab coats & scrubs

Thank you to everyone who dropped off their old lab coats and scrubs for the recycling event - it was a huge success. Nearly 500 pounds of materials was collected in the two-week period. Considering each lab coat weighs less than 1/2 pound, our estimate is that about 1,000 lab coats were collected. Great job, Baylor! Looking forward to next year's event!
