Recycling News . . .

Winthrop University participates in America Recycles Day each year.  This is a national event that emphasized recycling and encourages the purchase of products with high recycled content. Faculty, staff and students are given the opportunity to pledge their commitment. 

Winthrop University also participates participates in RecycleMania each year.  RecycleMania is a friendly national competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an 8-week period each spring, colleges across the United States and Canada report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week and are in turn ranked in various categories based on who recycles the most on a per capita basis, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling.  With each weeks updated ranking, participating schools follow their performance against other colleges and use the results to rally their campus to reduce and recycle more.


In 1999, Winthrop University garnered the Best Collegiate Recycling Program in the state.  The award was sponsored by the Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling at South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and Keep America Beautiful of South Carolina.
