Recycling Initiative

We are proud that our own Ruthie S. Premack led the effort to initiate curbside recycling pickup in San Antonio and was honored at the White House for her environmental efforts with the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Award.

The Premack Law Office is an environmentally sensitive office. We minimize our use of paper, store most records electronically, and print all documents on recycled paper with a high post-consumer recycled content. We shred and recycle all scrap paper.

The Premack Law Office runs on 100% wind-generated power through the City Public Service Windtricity Program.
