UT improves in national recycling competitionBy Kevin Bucher : April 22nd, 2014
The University of Toledo was once again successful in its recycling efforts during RecycleMania, which took place from Feb. 2 to March 31.
The University also placed top three in the MAC for corrugated cardboard and bottles and cans, and finished in second place for paper.
UT competed against more than 450 schools across the United States and Canada in the eight-week competition. The University improved in most categories on a national level.
UT improved from 42 to 26 in the paper category, 95 to 57 in corrugated cardboard, and 111 to 92 in the Gorilla Division.
“The sustainability, energy, efficiency and design initiative is very proud of UT’s results in this year’s RecycleMania competition. We’d like to thank all UT students, faculty and staff for their continual support,” said Brooke Mason, interim sustainability specialist. “We strive for continual improvement, so we are already thinking about how we will beat this year’s rankings next year.”
