Students encouraged to help with Recyclemania

Engineering students are being asked to rally to recycle. The goal is to help Purdue rise to the top in the 2013 Recyclemania competition among hundreds of North American colleges and universities.

The annual competition runs from February 3 through March 30, after which each school reports its amount of recycling during the period, as well as the amount of trash. Each school is then ranked in various categories.

Last year Purdue ranked 81 out of 275 institutions. Students with questions about how to get involved can contact the Office of University Sustainability at 49-42481 or
