Recyclemania is an 8-week challenge to increase recycling rates among 600 colleges all over the country. Each week, recycling and trash data are reported and ranked, and in 2012, WPI received a $1000 award for the greatest week to week increase in paper recycling.
This year WPI ended up in the middle of the 600 schools, although our recycling tonnage continues to go, and the reason may be due to an increased amount of waste.
