Barrie, Ontario, February 28, 2012 — Busch Systems International, a leading manufacturer of recycling, waste, and compost containers has announced the conclusion to the campus recycling “Like the Logo” contest. Montana Tech has won the grand prize of $5000 in Busch recycling bins for their campus recycling program. The contest ran as a lead-up to the “Recyclemania” national campaign which promotes recycling across college and university campuses.
The “Like the Logo” contest ran from January 23rd until February 27th and encouraged colleges and universities across North America to post their campus recycling logo through the Busch Systems Facebook page. The schools were then encouraged to garner as many votes as possible supporting their logo. The top three vote-getting logos were entered into a draw for the top prize. The top three recycling logos were submitted by Montana Tech, North Carolina State University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago, with Montana Tech taking home $5000 in recycling bins for their school recycling program. After hearing about the strong efforts put forth Craig Busch, President of Busch Systems, insisted on awarding both North Carolina State University and the University of Illinois at Chicago each with $1,000.00 in recycling containers to further encourage their green initiatives.
Busch Systems ran the contest in an effort to increase awareness of campus recycling programs across North America. There were a total of 37 campus recycling logos entered with over 2500 votes cast.
“It was amazing to see the level of school spirit involved in regard to recycling”, states Serena Brooks, Sales Manager at Busch Systems. “We expected a high level of competitiveness. We were thrilled with the degree of pride these schools take in their recycling programs”.
Founded in 1900, Montana Tech of the University of Montana boasts a campus comprised of four colleges and schools located in Butte, Montana. The student body of almost 3000 is enrolled in studies varying from engineering to liberal arts.
“It’s great to see a school like Montana Tech win the recycling bins for their program. Hopefully, this contest will help increase awareness and recycling rates on college campuses across North America”, states Brooks.
