Colgate Takes First Swing at RecycleMania

By John Pumilio on December 3, 2009

This year, Colgate will compete in our first national RecycleMania competition. Colgate will be ranked in comparison to other participating institutions based on the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the greatest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, and the overall highest recycling rate.

If you are interested in becoming a RecycleManiac, you can contact Colgate’s Sustainability Coordinator, John Pumilio (jpumilio@colgate.edu), and I’ll add you to the team. We’ll meet weekly during the ten weeks of RecycleMania (Jan-Mar) and plan informational events and take action to improve our campus recycling rates!
