Sustainability at Meredith College
Fifth Week RecycleMania Prize Winners
Congratulations to Krista Ingle Konrad in Ledford and Mary Woessner in Stringfield for their participation in campus recycling. Krista won compact florescent bulbs (CFLs) and Mary won a reusable SIGG water bottle on Friday, March 20, 2009.
Thank you to student volunteer Meredith Hurley for her help with Friday's recycling and waste assessment. Volunteers polled 8 students in Poteat that were present and willing to participate. All 8 demonstrated correct recycling and were entered into the drawing for the prizes. Similar assessments will continue on campus. To volunteer to help, contact Volunteer Services at email@example.com.
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 February, Meredith topped our own recycling charts with the highest rate of paper and aluminum recycling all year!
