Students encourage recycling tons of waste
Last year, Athens residents took the carbon equivalent of 8,500 cars off the road – by recycling about 14,000 tons of trash. The University contributed roughly 12 percent of the year’s recyclables to the Athens-Clarke County recycling facility. Will this newspaper in your hands contribute to next year’s statistics? Some students and recycling administrators think it should, especially with the celebration of America Recycles Day on Sunday.
