University of North Dakota Faculty/Staff Newsletter

RecycleMania continues through March 30

For the fifth year in a row, UND will join more than 600 colleges and universities participating in RecycleMania, a friendly competition to help promote waste reduction and recycling. UND is the only college from North Dakota participating this year.

The competition takes place over a 10-week period. All material that is recycled during this period will determine an average weekly weight of recyclables and waste reduction per student, staff, and faculty member.

The main goal of this event is to increase student awareness of campus recycling and waste minimization. No schools “lose” – all participants win through their efforts and achievements in waste reduction and recycling. The competition began Sunday, Jan 20, and will continue through March 30.

For more information, please call Debbie Merrill at 777.4878 or go to http://www.recyclemaniacs.

Once is not enough . . Recycle!
