Why Compete?

  • 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.
