RecycleMania competition among colleges and universities began this week, and once again Drexel University is participating. During this friendly, eight-week competition, we will track the amount of paper, cardboard, aluminum, glass, plastic, Recyclemania Live cell phones and computer equipment* recycled on our campuses so we can benchmark Drexel’s performance against other institutions.
Last year, Drexel finished in the top 20 percent of schools in the “waste minimization” category and was the first-place winner of the Game Day Challenge, with 1,300 pounds of recyclable materials collected during a single men’s basketball game. A full breakdown of last year’s results are posted on the Drexel Green website. Drexel Green is challenging the University community to help us beat those numbers in 2018.
“Drexel Green is thrilled to be participating in RecycleMania for the 12th year in a row!” said Rita LaRue, vice president of campus services. “RecycleMania has added significance in 2018 because Drexel Green has identified recycling as our primary green initiative for the year. We are pleased to support the recycling practices in place across our campuses through the competition Recyclemania Live.”
Drexel boasts a robust, single-stream recycling program that makes it easy and convenient to recycle most plastic, glass, aluminum, paper and cardboard waste in University-operated properties. During RecycleMania, Drexel Green will publish tips and resources and host collection events on all three Philadelphia campuses where employees and students can dispose of more cumbersome items, such as computers Recyclemania Live.
