Though we didn’t win any of the competitions, we had strong showings in almost all the categories, and we made some improvements from last year’s competition.  Our weekly recycling rate increased from, on average, 28.39% to 29.91%.  Our average weekly pounds of recycling per person increased from 3.04lbs to 3.54lbs.  And, overall, we recycled 80,000 more pounds during the competition this year than last year!

We would like to thank all of you for your participation this year—you’re a huge part of the reason we were so successful! 

Don’t forget, though, it’s important to keep on recycling and reducing waste.  Just think of it as training for next year’s competition so we can go for the win!
