RecycleMania has begun!

By Sustainability Office on February 7, 2017

RecycleMania has officially begun! Over the next 8 weeks, we will be weighing our waste in order to measure our recycling rates on campus. For the past two weeks, we have been conducting a baseline measurement of our recycling rates and have calculated that our recycling rate is approximately 18%. During the competition, we will be working to increase this by 5% in order to achieve our goal of a 23% recycling rate.

Look out for our interns and Green Ambassadors who will be tabling in the Coop all week to learn more about Recyclemania and how you can do your part!

Do your part by ensuring you are recycling properly according to the recycling guide, and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.
