RecycleMania hits campus


MU students compete in Recyclemania.

For the third year in a row, Campus Facilities and Sustain Mizzou are collaborating to promote recycling on campus. From Jan. 18 to March 28, Mizzou is competing in RecycleMania, a 10-week, national, intercollegiate competition to increase recycling awareness. More than 450 colleges and universities compete in the event. 

“We’ll measure recycling output for the whole campus,” says Patrick Margherio, president of Sustain Mizzou, “but we’ll try to encourage students to recycle primarily through an ad campaign in the residence halls.”

Last year, Mizzou finished 11th in cardboard recycling due to increased efforts in the residence halls.
