FSU among top fifth of campuses in recycling event

School ranks 54th out of 605

— FROSTBURG — Frostburg State University came in among the top fifth of the 605 college campuses that participated in the 2012 RecycleMania Tournament, ranking 54th overall.

FSU ranked above most Maryland colleges and universities, including Johns Hopkins, Towson University, UMBC, Morgan State University and University of Maryland-College Park.

In Maryland, the only school that ranked higher than FSU was Harford Community College.

This year FSU has demonstrated its care for its environment, placing 109th for the per capita classic (the combined weight of the recyclables divided by the campus population), 33rd for paper recycled and 37th for bottles and cans recycled.

RecycleMania is an eight-week challenge that ignites classic college rivalries, rallying students, faculty and staff to increase on-campus recycling rates beyond their collegiate competitors.

FSU participates annually in the Waste Minimization component of the RecycleMania competition.
