What is RecycleMania?

RecycleMania is a competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities across their campus communities.

Over a 10 week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to:

    Who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita
    The largest amount of total recyclables
    The least amount of trash per capita
    The highest recycling rate

recycle

Participating schools can then monitor each week's reports and rankings to see how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their school to reduce and recycle more.
