Photo Caption: Berkeley College students, staff and faculty joined 605 college communities nationwide in reducing waste during the 12th Annual RecycleMania Tournament. This year, 92 million pounds of recyclables and organic materials were recovered, which prevented the release of nearly 150,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.  In a friendly Berkeley College in-house competition, the Brooklyn location in New York City, was named RecycleMania Tournament Champion for Waste Reduction. Pictured with the award is Conrad Walker, Berkeley College Campus Operating Officer, Brooklyn, NY.
