Keep it up USF!

RecycleMania is underway at USF, with the university hoping to top its 4th place finish in the Food Service and Organics recycling category and 60th place finish overall nationally in 2009. RecycleMania runs through March 27.

Let’s keep USF’s new zero-emission electric Zap recycling truck and Facilities Management’s Mirrain Polanco busy loading and unloading recycle carts for transport to USF’s recycling compactor for the competition.
