What is Recyclemania?

RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an 8-week period each spring, participating colleges report their numbers for recycling and trash collected each week, which are then ranked in various categories. While we like to promote recycling throughout the entire year, RecycleMania is a fun way to rally our campus to reduce and recycle even more!
