Recyclemania is back!
Recyclemania is a friendly competition between hundreds of colleges and universities across North America. This year's competition runs February 2nd to April 11.
During this 9-week period, participating schools compete in a variety of contests that compare our recycling rate, as well as the trash we generate, to other participating schools. Since all the recycling on campus is collected together, this contest is for every one of the members of the College community.
Recycling is easy to do, and it conserves energy, reduces green house gas emissions and creates jobs. So, pitch it in the bin and help the planet breathe easier. All you have to do to participate is use the bins in your room or office. Since IC and Tompkins County use single-stream recycling methods, all of your recyclables can go in the same bin without sorting.
You can recycle: Metal or aluminum cans, aluminum foil, glass bottles (all colors), #1-7 plastics, milk cartons, drink/juice boxes, and various types of paper like fliers, newspapers, catalogs, magazines, brochures, notebook paper, computer paper, books, pamphlets and junk mail, paperboard (such as cereal boxes), and scrap paper.
If you want to know more about how you can be involved on campus, contact the Ithaca College Resource and Environmental Management Program (REMP) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
