News Sentinel: Hurling phone books, bottle pitching part of UT effort to recycle
UT’s Recyclympics was featured by the Knoxville News Sentinel. In the spirit of friendly competition and going green, faculty, staff and students competed in six Olympic-style recycling-themed events to win prizes. Crowd-pleasing favorites include the phonebook shot put, plastic bottle free throw, and bottle-cap-in-a-haystack. Recyclympics promotes UT’s participation in RecycleMania, in which colleges across the nation and Canada are ranked in an eight-week competition based on the amount of recycling and trash collected each week.
