Mercy Medical Gala

Mercy Medical Gala

The Mercy Medical Gala, held at UC Merced in Fall 2013, was a big success, especially from a recycling standpoint. UC Merced Recycling collected all of the event's solid waste, and was able to keep 93 percent of it out of the landfill.

That's a pretty impressive number, considering there were about 700 people at the event.

This photo shows all of the recycling in comparison to the landfill material. The gray bin in the middle is the only landfill material, and it's only half full!
