To promote the national recycling competition, the E-Reps help run a competition between the SMU residence halls. The community that recycles more than it throws away wins.

The first place prize for highest recycling waste percentage is a week of Einstein’s breakfast brought to the residence hall! Second place is a pizza party!

Congratulations to Smith-Perkins Hall for winning first place! SMU Service House won second!
