Miscellaneous

2.) Green Tip: Catch RecycleMania!

UofL is competing against schools across the country to see who can reduce waste and recycle the most throughout February and March. You can help the Cards to victory by avoiding disposable items as much as possible – bring your own mug, bottle, bag, etc. -- and making sure you always recycle, which is amazingly easy at UofL. All types of plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass go into the same single-stream recycling bins all over campus. For details on what you can recycle at UofL: http://louisville.edu/sustainability/operations/recycling.html RecycleMania standings: http://www.recyclemaniacs.org/scoreboard/participating-schools/live-ranking?node_id=27066.
