RecycleMania 2016 Recap

The 8-week Recyclemania Tournament has come to a close for 2016 with some very exciting results!  Thanks to the daily recycling by residents, guests, and staff -- over 160,000 pounds of recyclable material was collected this year in the residence halls alone!  Very nice work KSU!
