Western Today staff

The 2011 Go for the Green: Total Waste Reduction Challenge has begun at Western Washington University. The contest is a waste-reduction challenge pitting all of WWU's residence halls against each other during winter quarter, with the winner set to be announced April 6 at a party in the Performing Arts Center Concert Hall.

Hundreds of dollars in prizes are up for grabs as students fight to reduce consumption of water, natural gas and electricity while creating the least amount of landfill waste.

More information is available on the WWU Office of Sustainability's website.
