For those of you new to campus or BCC’s green initiatives, Recyclemania is an annual contest at colleges and universities across the country. This friendly competition helps to promote waste reduction activities and monitors our progress as we move toward our zero waste goal at BCC. Over the course of 8 weeks, we will be tracking our trash, recycling, and compost.
Last year, BCC performed exceptionally well, finishing up with a 70.6% recycling rate. We ranked 8th out of 232 institutions and placed 1st in the state. That’s very impressive! Let’s aim higher in 2016!
