Curtis Hall Earns Top Spot in RecycleMania Competition at Cedar Crest

Cedar Crest Students

Cedar Crest College’s first-ever participation in the national RecycleMania program has come to an end, and Curtis Hall has earned top honors for collecting the most recycling per student among the dorms and commuter students. Curtis Hall was followed in order in the standings by Butz, Moore and Steinbright halls, and commuter students. For their winning efforts, students in Curtis Hall have earned the highly coveted RecycleMania trophy for this year, as well as a pizza party tonight from 6:30-9:30 p.m., featuring a special guest appearance by College President Carmen Twillie Ambar.

In addition to collecting primarily paper, plastic and aluminum recyclables from January through March, the RecycleMania program at Cedar Crest featured a slew of events including a locally grown food cook-off, a sustainability video contest, a recycled art competition, a green fashion show featuring recycled fashions, and much more to promote environmentally friendly practices.

Cedar Crest was not among the top recycling schools nationally, but RecycleMania Coordinator Roxana Shupp said the program was very successful in its first year.

“The students did a nice job collecting recyclables this year, and I think the activities we held during the course of RecycleMania have helped to raise awareness of sustainability issues on campus,” she said. “I feel very strongly that with a year under our belt, next year will be even better.”
