Ohio State is again participating in RecycleMania, an eight-week competition among 630 universities nationwide to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Universities are ranked each week by the volume of recyclables collected and by recyclables per capita, trash generated per capita, and by recycling rates.
Last year, Ohio State placed 50 out of 300 in the category of total recyclables, with a collection of nearly 300,000 pounds of recycling. Ohio State also placed in the top 50 in the waste minimization category with 34.6 pounds of waste generated per person.
Can we do even better this year?
