From Feb. 3 through March 30, Virginia Wesleyan students, faculty and staff are participating in RecycleMania National Challenge, a friendly competition promoting waste reduction in campus communities across the United States and Canada. Each spring, more than 630 colleges and universities track recycling rates for an eight-week period in an attempt to reduce waste. A weekly report on how much recycling and trash Marlins collect will be used to rank VWC and other schools according to how much they gather per capita. In the first official week of this year’s challenge, VWC recycled 2,224 pounds of material. Last year, a total of 26,966 pounds of material were recycled by the College as part of the initiative. Marlins Go Green President Randy Rice will keep the campus updated on the College’s progress throughout the competition. For more information, contact Randy Rice at More
