Battle of the Faculties

Who are the best recyclers, the staff or the students?

The Wollongong University staff or the students? Time to find out!

Each faculty has their own recycling box in the common room to put their recycling in. We're starting with Plastic and Aluminium.

If the students beat the staff then the faculty who performed best will be entered into a prize draw. Anyone can take part by recycling but in order to win the prizes you need to enter below

RAISE YOUR ECO-SCORE

The competition will be based on each faculty's Eco-Score, with the students' scores being combined against the staff.

The Eco-Score is created from the environmental impact of your recycling. The more you recycle the bigger the impact, and therefore the higher the score.

Don't lose points!!!

Your faculty will be penalised if dirty recycling is placed into the bins or if there is non-recyclable material is added.

You will lose the following:

Dirty - 50%

Mixed - 25%
