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.
