Sustainability at Meredith College
First Student RecycleMania Prize Winner
Congratulations to Angela Deeds, a resident of Brewer Residence Hall, for her participation in campus recycling. Angela won a SIGG Swiss made reusable water bottle on Friday, February 13, 2009. Thank you to student volunteers Jessica Prescott and Angela Johnson for their help with Friday’s recycling and waste assessment. Volunteers polled 15 Brewer and Faircloth residents that were present and willing to participate. 13 demonstrated correct recycling and were entered into the drawing for the prize. Similar assessments will continue on campus, both for students and faculty and staff. To volunteer to help, contact Volunteer Services at firstname.lastname@example.org Recyclemania is a national competition. In Spring 2009, Meredith is competing against Peace College to see who can recycle the most per person on campus. See the chart in the Cate Center lobby for latest results. In January, Meredith recycled 825 pounds of plastic, 68 pounds of aluminum, 200 pounds of glass and 1250 pounds of paper.
