WKU is participating in RecycleMania, a nationwide college and university recycling competition.
The competition began this week and continues until April 8. RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate.
With each week’s reports and rankings, WKU and other schools can watch how results fluctuate and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.
