RecycleMania to release final results April 16; McDaniel 4th in State

April 13, 2010

Headed into Week 9 of the 10-week competition McDaniel was ranked fourth among 12 participating Maryland colleges and universities and first in the Centennial athletic conference in the Competitive division. As of April 5, members of the campus community had recycled 52,563 pounds of paper, cardboard, bottles and cans or 16.91 pounds per person.

“I was impressed with the student interest in Recyclemania this year,” said Sunita Panik ’11, president of the Environmental Action Club.  “Not only were EAC members actively involved in the effort to get the word out and increase recycling on campus, the Environmental Policy and Science honors society and Phi Mu sorority were excited to help as well.”

According to its Web site, RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste-reduction activities to their campus communities. Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data that are then ranked according to who collects 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.

“I would still like to see the [College] increase the amount of recycling bins around campus; one in each classroom and by each trash can would be fantastic,” said Panik whose commented that bins can make a big difference.

Stay tuned on Twitter for final results on April 16.
