Last year, we recycled 0.85 pounds per capita. Let's beat that this year!

How does the CRZW competition work?
NMT weighs recycling collected over 8 weeks and reports that weight to an online tracking system.
The total weight is divided by the number of students and employees, resulting in pounds per capita which is how schools are ranked.

New for 2021 competition:
3 winners for each 8-week category -- 1 for each campus size: small (<2,500), medium (2,501-7,000), large (7,001-17,000).
