APSU competing in ‘Campus Race to Zero Waste’

On January 31st, Austin Peay State University joined the “Campus Race to Zero Waste,” with APSU competing against other universities in the medium category. The competition lasts through March 27th, which gives Austin Peay eight weeks to track the university’s recycling and composting weights.

Multiple competitions exist within the CR2ZW, such as electronics recycling, composting, and case studies. APSU will compete in the Per Capita Classic because recycling is already in place on campus. The University also will participate in the “Electronics Recycling” competition, which allows community involvement.

Here are APSU’s Week 2 recycling results:

  • Cardboard – 1,497 pounds
  • Cans – 888 pounds
  • Plastic – 307 pounds

Recycling Facts: In Clarksville-Montgomery County you cannot recycle magazines or newspapers in the paper bins. Please dispose of these items in the trash.
