SBU finished 80th out of 307 participating schools in the "per capita division" with 16 pounds recycled per capita! SBU recycled more this year than during last year's competition, which resulted in 13.825 pounds recycled per capita.
Our Recyclemania goal this year is education. By educating our campus, we hope to improve recyling efforts from last year to have 27 percent of all waste be recycled.
Our "Be the Tradition" slogan means that we are to continue our efforts to not only be conscious of recycling during Recyclemania but also become a more sustainable campus.
