The recycling race is on as the Virginia Wesleyan community once again participates in RecycleMania, an eight-week (Feb. 2 - March 29) collegiate competition promoting waste reduction in campus communities across the United States and Canada. Each spring, hundreds of colleges and universities compete in different contests to see which institution can collect the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate. A weekly report is used to rank VWC and other schools. The College is currently in fourth place in its competition division. The campus community is urged to use recycle bins to discard aluminum cans, plastic and glass bottles, and paper waste. For more information and a current list of rankings, visit recyclemaniacs.org.
