The 2015 RecycleMania kickoff is underway! Sounds exciting, right? But what’s it about?
The Daily took a look at what Seattle's new composting ordinanice means for the University of Washington.
The law prohibiting food waste and compostable items from trash headed to the landfill went into effect on Jan. 1, as part of Seattle's push to divert 60% of the city's waste away from the landfill. UW is already at 60% diversion, but the campus has a goal of 70% waste diversion by 2020.
Wednesday, Nov. 19, join EcoReps for a clothing exchange available to all UW students!
Have some T-shirts or clothes sitting in your closet that you never wear? Donate them to EcoReps and pick out some new-to-you clothes! Find EcoReps on the 17th Avenue median in front of 45th Street from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
T-shirts, sweatshirts, blouses, pants, shorts, shoes, hats, scarves - come drop off anything you don't want and in return you can have whatever is donated!
Keep in mind:
The application deadline has been extended for the RecycleMania 2015 Student Planning Committee winter quarter positions!

The University of Washington competes for national recognition in RecycleMania, a tournament in which college campuses compete to see which can recycle and compost the most campus waste.
