RecycleMania

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

Feb. 7 - April 2, 2016Logo

Over an 8-week period each spring, colleges across the United States and Canada report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week and are in turn ranked in various categories based on who recycles the most on a per capita basis, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling.

Our schedule:

  • Feb 9th – RecycleMania Launch – De La Salle Lawn
    • Games, Music, Prizes and Treats
  • Feb 15th, 18th, 23rd, 24th  - Dorm Storm
    • Green Gaels will roam the Res. Halls collecting recyclables
  • March 1st - March 14th – Mug Shot
    • -Bring your reusable mug to Oliver Hall & Café Louis & get 10% off!
  • March 15th - March 28th- Caught ‘Green Handed’
    • Our team is on campus looking for examples of ‘green behaviors’ all around campus!
 
To top it off, we are competing against GONZAGA on who can divert the most waste away from the landfill! The loser's Sustainability Team has to take a pic in its rival's gear and the loser's cafeteria will feature cookies with its rival logo!

In 2014, our diversion ranged from 13-24% during this competition.
