Congratulations! K-State won the 2018 Big 12 recycling competition in Recyclemania 2018. During the eight weeks of the competition, K-Staters recycled 486,286,000 pounds of recyclable material.

K-State has won this competition four of the last five years due to your commitment to making Kansas State University a greener place. The recyclabel material includes paper, plastics, aluminum and tin cans, food compost and cooking oil. The success couldn't be done without teamwork.

So a big thanks to the students, faculty and the custodians who pick up the material in the buildings. A job greatly appreciated by all. Below is the Big 12 standing in recycling in 2018 

Thank You,

Bill Spiegel
