Dump Those Old Directories the Right Way

The Aluminum is About to Fly!

 

This year Auburn is entered as a competitor against other colleges and universities in RecycleMania.

The 10 week national competition allows a friendly competition among colleges where everyone ultimately wins. But this could be the year that Auburn brings home one of the sweet recycled statues and bragging rights.

In addition to the national competition, there will be an on-campus competition at Auburn between the three major residence areas: Quad, Hill, Village. There will be individual prizes as well as a grand prize for the residential area that contributes most.

For more information on campus check in with the AU Recycling Program
