Recyclemania Waste Audit

Hey all, I just wanted to let you all know about the building waste audit that happened tonight. Some students from the Sustainability office came to Southwest. We went through two recycling bags and found that 16.7% of the contents of those bags were actually trash. We also went through 3 trash bags and found that 25% of the contents of those bags were actually recyclable. The students informed us that compared to the other buildings that they have audited, Southwest is doing pretty well, but there is always room for improvement.
