The Bethany College Green Team has joined 350 other colleges and universities in the national environmental competition RecycleMania. The contest is designed to draw attention and raise participation in campus waste reduction and recycling efforts.

Competing for the first time in school history, Bethany has entered in the benchmark category. Over a 10-week period, the college will report recycling and trash data. With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools. To kick off this event, members of the Green Team distributed new, permanent recycle bins across campus on Thursday, January 28.
