Marlins Go Green with RecycleMania

02-29-2016

The recycling race is on as the Virginia Wesleyan community once again participates in RecycleMania, an eight-week (Feb. 7-April 2) collegiate competition promoting waste reduction in campus communities across the United States and Canada. Each spring, hundreds of colleges and universities compete to see which institution can collect the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, and achieve the highest recycling rate. Members of Marlins Go Green, led by VWC junior Zack Drake, do a weekly count of recyclables on campus. The Virginia Wesleyan community is urged to use recycle bins to discard aluminum cans, plastic and glass bottles, and paper waste. Visit recyclemaniacs.org for a current list of rankings.
