Penn College Enters National Recycling Competition

Published 01.31.2008


Through April 5, Penn College will be part of a 10-week recycling competition with colleges and universities nationwide to see who can recover the largest amount of recyclable materials based on per-capita campus population (includes students and faculty/staff). General Services will collect materials from recycling bins in academic and administrative buildings and in residence halls. The materials will be weighed and weekly totals will be recorded. Information on the Recyclemania competition, as well as weekly results and overall rankings, can be found online. Area schools competing include Lycoming College, and Bucknell, Susquehanna and Bloomsburg universities. Penn College's participation in the competition is part of an ongoing recycling plan on campus.
