Why compete
Why Compete?

  • A high percentage of waste generated on campus is from the residence hall and dining hall system.

  • Recycling and reducing waste helps keep costs of disposal in check while addressing a wide array of environmental and economical problems.

  • A tool for getting increased understanding and participation in recycling with a hard to reach part of our constituency.

  • Students are exposed to competition and rivalry. This is a natural extension of that.

  • Another way to benchmark with other schools.


Measurement
Measurement

  • Weekly weights totaled from residence halls, on-campus apartments, dining halls and other campus food venues.

  • Total Weekly Recycling - Weight Divided by -Total On-Campus Students = Per Capita Weight

  • The best 10 week total wins the competition.

  • This past year the most improved school during the second five weeks from the first five also wins recognition. May change that this year.
