Recyclemania is back for another year. The campus will kick off its Feed the Wolf! campaign on Sunday, Feb. 2.
This year, the Bona Wolf will be lending his support for Recyclemania — just look for the Bonnies wolf logo designating recycling containers and informational posters across campus.
The goal of this year’s campaign is to recycle 25 percent of the waste generated by the St. Bonaventure campus. The university is among more than 400 colleges and universities participating in the Recyclemania Tournament, and weekly updates of each institution will be posted online via www.recyclemaniacs.org.
Spearheading this year’s efforts is the Franciscan Center for Social Concern, the Recyclemania Committee, Tread Lightly and the Student Government Association.
During the week of Feb. 3, St. Bonaventure community members will be invited to sign leaf-shaped pledge cards showing their commitment to recycling. These pledge cards will then be placed on a tree located in Hickey Dining Hall.
