RecycleMania at CMN

 

RecycleMania 2015

The College of Menominee Nation is participating in RecycleMania 2015, a friendly recycling completion among colleges and universities. The competition began on February 2 and will run over an eight-week period ending on March 27, 2015. The Sustainable Development Institute’s Sustainability Coordinator, Rebecca Edler, oversees the recycling campaign that provides information to the campuses on what to recycle, how to recycle, and why it is important. This year, our goal is to make it a College wide initiative by involving faculty, staff, and students across both campus locations in measuring and recording the amount of recyclables.

 

At the Keshena campus, the maintenance department collects the recyclables across campus and places them outside of the Waste-Management recycling dumpster located near the Technical Educational building. Students, faculty, and staff members weigh and record the materials and then place the recyclables in the dumpster. Working closely with housekeeping, the student government president, Sally Hill, leads the efforts at the Green Bay/Oneida Campus.

 

The campaign is designed to raise awareness of the importance of recycling on campus and at home. In addition, it provides an educational opportunity on why it is importance to reduce our campus greenhouse gas emission, a goal that aligns with our American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC).
