In the Grand Champion category Wright State University is ranked #90 out of 288 Universities with cumulative recycling at 34.41%. Just as a reference point, Butler University, a school about 1/4 the size of Wright State, is #24 and recycling at a rate of 50%. In Ohio, Wright State is ranked 7th out of 14 (which might be ok if you want to be average) but Butler is #2 in the state of Indiana. Come on, join the crowd and pitch in—Recycle! Beat Butler!
With just a couple of weeks to go, we REALLY need to make a huge push to boost our standing in the competition so stuff those Green Spot containers with all of the recyclable items you can find and bring your friends to join you with tons of recycling!
