What is RecycleMania?

The annual 8-week competition challenges colleges and universities across the United States and Canada to collect the most recyclable materials.

Recycle ALL paper, cardboard, bottles, cans, and all other Single Stream recyclables!

Recycle EVERYWHERE ON CAMPUS and the volume will get added to our school’s total.

The main goal of this event is to increase student awareness of campus recycling and waste minimization. All participating schools are required to report measurements on a weekly basis in pounds. RecycleMania provides many ways to gain recognition, including RecycleMania trophies, awards, and participant certificates.

In the end, RecycleMania helps all participating colleges and universities make achievements in recycling and waste reduction!
