Week 8 & Final Recycling Rates for RecycleMania 2012!

Hello fellow green thinkers,


This year has been the most exciting RecycleMania competition SUNY New Paltz has ever participated in! The recycling rates were double what they were last year! Each residence hall held programs inspired by the tournament and really helped to make RecycleMania such a success this year. I want to thank everyone who participated, recycled, and encouraged others to recycle. Each person contributes to RecycleMania by recycling even one plastic bottle and the numbers from this year really show how much recycling is recognized on the SUNY New Paltz campus.


SUNY New Paltz recycled 45,268.7 pounds of material during the 2012 RecycleMania Tournament!!

  1. Hi! You are doing wonderful green things on your campus and in your community! BRAVO! It’s really great to see your efforts and hear about your events. Clearwater – based in Beacon and a Hudson Valley icon for over 40 years – is looking to recruit volunteers to work at our Music and Environmental festival, the Great Hudson River Revival this June 16th and 17th. Is there a way the New Paltz Green Team could promote our festival and the great Green volunteering possibilities we have available? We have a Zero Waste committee that needs 80 volunteers…. would anyone like to participate in helping to make the environmental awareness event ZERO WASTE? I sure hope so! Contact me – Linda – at the Clearwater office: Linda@clearwater.org, 845-265 -8080 x 7105. We would love your help (and the music is AWESOME!)!
