Yalies must go beyond recycling: Opinion

Apr 8th, 2010 | By | Category: Recycling

You’ve heard it ad nauseum: reduce, reuse and recycle. And yet, before you toss this paper (in the recycling bin, of course), consider Yale’s performance this year in the 10-week intercollegiate competition, RecycleMania.

In a column two months ago, Laura Wellman ’12 noted our lackluster standing (181st out of 267 schools) and implored our community to improve its recycling habits. Unfortunately, by the end of the competition two weeks ago, our standing had dropped to 186th, proving that if nothing else, we’re capable of recycling our results (last year we also placed in the 70th percentile).
