Agnes Scott Recycles with the Best of ‘EmDecatur Metro | April 19, 2010 | 5:22 pm
Agnes Scott College is the top-ranked college in Georgia and No. 35 nationally in this year’s RecycleMania Grand Champion Division.
RecycleMania is a national college and university recycling competition. About 600 colleges and universities signed up for the 10-week competition, which pits institutions all over the country against each other in several categories to see which school can recycle the largest portion of their waste.
…“What was different for 2010? This year Agnes Scott has a closed loop policy – simultaneously encouraging green purchasing and aggressive waste reduction,” said Susan Kidd, director of sustainability at Agnes Scott. “The campus community’s support of this policy, along with the initiation of a food composting program, gave our numbers a real boost in the competition.”
