Annual RecycleMania contest has begun
From now through April 8, students and employees are being asked to recycle more than ever as Binghamton University competes against colleges and universities across the country to see who can recycle the most.

In 2005, BU ranked 23rd out of 46 participating schools, recycling 27.89 pounds per student. This year, 93 colleges and universities in 33 states are participating.

Look for the recycling team at sporting events in coming weeks.

Cans and bottles redeemed off campus can also help boost BU’s recycling totals. Just e-mail recycle@binghamton. edu with the number of cans and bottles returned.

For more information about RecycleMania, visit http://www., e-mail recycle@binghamton. edu, or call Juliet Berling at 777-3411.
