RecycleMania Question of the Week!

(Surplus/Recycling)

2013-02-22
Caroline recycle@musc.edu

This week's RecycleMania question is in regards to how much waste we produce. More recycling=less garbage!

"How much garbage (average pounds per year) does each of us generate?"

Please send your answer to this week's question to recycle@musc.edu by Monday, February 25, for a chance to win a prize.

The answer to last week's question was more to raise awareness, rather than one specific right answer. When it comes to the use of mercury at MUSC,answers ranged from:

Florescent Light Bulbs, CFL
Batteries
Thermostats
Manometers
Blood Pressure Cuffs
Amalgam

As you can see, there is still a lot of use of mercury within our work environment.
