GV to take part in Recyclemania challenge

For the seventh year, Grand Valley State University is competing against hundreds of other universities and colleges across the country in the Recyclemania challenge. The competition will take place from Jan. 19 until March 29. During that time, GVSU will try to collect the largest amount of recyclable goods and generate the lowest amount of trash. The competition has several different categories, such as Food Service Organics and Waste Minimization. In 2013, GVSU was ranked 33rd in the country and first in the state for the composting category.
