|UND to compete in recycling contest|
The University of North Dakota has joined with more than 400 colleges and universities participating in RecycleMania, a friendly competition to help reduce waste. Over a 10-week period from Jan. 18 to March 28, campuses across the country will compete in various contests to see which institution can collect the largest amount of recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate.
This is the first time UND has joined the RecycleMania contest. The competition will measure the amount of paper, cans, bottles, and cardboard that it recycles per person and encourages waste minimization on campus.
If you have any questions on recycling, please contact Deb Merrill at 777-4878. Consider what you can do to help improve our recycling and reduce our waste!
