Seawolves, Are You Ready to Recycle?

Recyclemania 2016

2016 Recyclemania Tournament

wolfie-recyclingHelp Stony Brook University beat the competition in RecycleMania 2016, an eight-week recycling competition that begins Sunday, February 7, and runs through Saturday, April 2. Stony Brook will once again compete against more than 400 other colleges and universities in several recycling categories.

During this eight-week event, you can help reduce the campus’ carbon footprint by living sustainably and recycling paper, bottles, cans and e-waste whenever possible. A full list of what can be recycled and other sustainable tips can be found online.

In 2014 we took first place in e-waste recycling with 125,498 pounds recycled. In 2015 we improved our total e-waste score for the third consecutive year by recycling 139,676 pounds of material, and we recorded the highest totals in the per capita, gorilla and paper categories among participating SUNY schools. Let’s keep the momentum going and finish as a top campus recycler in 2016.

The Department of Recycling & Resource Management and the Office of Sustainability is promoting recycling on West Campus by providing receptacles for office cleaning and complimentary paper shredding, in addition to the removal of e-waste and other recyclable materials during the eight-week competition.

To request recycling services, please submit work orders into the University’s FIXIT work order system at www.stonybrook.edu/fixit/. For more information on RecycleMania at Stony Brook, please contact Recycling & Resource Management at (631) 632-4640 or via email at recycling@stonybrook.edu.
