Boston College Places First in Recyclemania!
RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. The awards are organized by the four Carnegie Classifications which include Title IV eligible, degree-granting colleges and universities in the United States. Schools are organized by their characteristics of size, degree length, and residence. Through our campus’ efforts over the 8-week competition period this spring, Boston College placed first amongst four-year, large, residential universities for per-capita waste, calculated as waste quantity per person. Our successfuls efforts and initiatives we hope to continue throughout the year and only look to improve our results in the future!
