Tis the season for recycling competitions and comparisons. Whether it is an intra-campus competition, a looming inter-campus competition, or time for annual reports to state regulators and benchmarking organizations, there is a lot of preparation and evaluation of recycling data that goes on this time of year.

For those of you who are trying to use these numbers to benchmark your program, or rate schools on some sort of scorecard, hopefully this sometimes-sarcastic blog series will help you to more critically look at the numbers from your peers and delve deeper into numbers before drawing conclusions.

And for those of you who don’t care about benchmarking or really care about recycling, but only want to win, well, I hope these help…
