RECYCLEMANIA!!!

Recyclemania is an annual 10 week effort of colleges and universities across the country to maximize recycling after minimizing waste. Recyclemania 2009 will run from January 18th to March 28th.

Washington and Lee has signed the Presidents Climate Commitment which requires participation in the waste minimization component of Recyclemania.  Although it is great to have a high percentage of waste resources diverted form the trash to recycling it is better to reduce the total amount of waste (trash plus recycling).

Please think about what you purchase and what you throw in the trash in relation to how much energy and natural resources are being wasted.  Be mindful of the future.  REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Your comments and ideas for conservation are always welcome at recycling.wlu.edu.
