First of all, the Office of Sustainability would like to thank all of you who emailed, called, or contacted us in other ways regarding recycling and/or RecycleMania, during these past two weeks. Your interest and encouragement is inspiring, and keeps us work even harder!
Now, those of you who know about RecycleMania, may also know that participants are required to report their waste and recycling numbers weekly. Unfortunately we have no means of tracking all the different waste streams at UIC in such short time intervals. This is in itself the primary reason why we chose to participate in the "Benchmark" division, instead of the "Competitive", but we hope to have refined our reporting for the 2010 event.
Be sure to check back here soon, we will post our recycling numbers as soon as we have them!
