Georgia Southern University Participating in 2017 RecycleMania Tournament
RecycleMania, the premier collegiate recycling competition managed by Keep America Beautiful, is currently underway at Georgia Southern University, and is encouraging students to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost the most on campuses across the country.
The competition, hosted by the Center for Sustainability (CfS), kicked off on Feb. 5 and runs for a total of eight weeks through April 1. During the first week, 8,020 pounds of waste have already been recycled.
“Last year, we recycled 83,620 pounds over the eight weeks — a 9,300 pound improvement over 2015. We want to keep that upward trend going,” said Lissa Leege, director of the CfS. “Every item we recycle saves Georgia Southern money and keeps valuable materials from taking the 120 mile trip to the landfill in Dry Branch, Georgia.”
