RecycleMania 2013 Weekly Results
Baseline recycling data for buildings were obtained prior to the beginning of RecycleMania. During RecycleMania values are reported using a calculated weight recycled per resident (per capita), since residence hall populations vary. Additionally, some buildings may have additional operations (such as food courts or retail businesses) that inflate the weight recycled per resident. This table indicates the cumulative percentage increase of total weight recycled per student from the baseline value. A higher percentage indicates how much a building's recycling has improved during RecycleMania!
|Building||8-week Average Change from Baseline**|
|All Recycling||Paper + Cardboard||Glass, Metal, Plastic|
|Student Residence Commons*||-46.3%||-57.2%||27.4%|
|West Side Residence Halls*||35.4%||37.7%||14.3%|
*Individual residence hall data is not available because buildings share loading docks
**Due to an issue with collections of certain materials at Student Residence Commons (and a sick driver) during the last four weeks of the competition, some materials were not picked up and may appear in recycling reports after the competition period is over.
