Recyclemania in Full Swing at UMW

The results of week two of RECYCLEMANIA are official — our ranking is 16th in the international competition and second in Virginia, with Virginia Wesleyan College having the lead.

Our combined weight is 9.90 pounds of recycling per person. This is equivalent to 48 metric tons of CO2 or 25 cars off the road, or the energy consumption of 13 households. For more information, visit
