Saint Vincent College launched its Recyclemania campaign on campus this week as part of the nationwide recycling contest among more than 500 colleges and universities sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The main goal of the competition is to increase student awareness of campus recycling and waste minimization. Materials to be collected include all paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, glass bottles and jars, and all plastics. The competition continues through March 31. Placing the first bags of paper in the collection bins are, from left, Angela Belli, environmental education director at the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve at Saint Vincent College and coordinator of the campaign; Andy Smith, a sophomore environmental science major from Greensburg, who is doing an internship at WPNR and serves as treasurer of the Environmental Awareness Club; and Joella Gearhard, a sophomore environmental science major from Murrysville, who is a work/study student at WPNR and president of the Environmental Awareness Club.
