Vanderbilt University has been recognized by the Tennessee Recycling Coalition as the 2013 Nonprofit Recycler of the Year and for having the 2013 Recycling Video of the Year in the higher education category. These awards recognize individuals, organizations, schools and businesses in the state of Tennessee that have demonstrated a strong commitment to waste reduction and recycling.
Many factors contributed to Vanderbilt winning the Nonprofit Recycler of the Year award, including:
The Recycling Video of the Year was awarded for “Recycling Makes Sense!” which was produced in 2012 as a joint effort between Vanderbilt’s Tongue ‘n’ Cheek improv comedy troupe and Vanderbilt’s Sustainability and Environmental Management Office to promote recycling among Vanderbilt students in campus residence halls. Watch the award-winning video.
The Tennessee Recycling Coalition is a nonprofit partnership of private business, federal and state agencies, cities and counties, nonprofit organizations, trade associations, educational institutions and individuals. Its mission is to promote the statewide adoption of waste reduction and recycling, to provide information and education, and to partner to address waste issues in the state of Tennessee.
