What is RecycleMania?

Recyclemania is a recycling competition among colleges and and universities across the U.S.  It began in 2001, and IC has been participating since 2005.  Over a 10-week period, schools compete to see which institution can collect the largest amount of recyclables from residence halls, on-campus apartments and dining halls. Schools report measurements on a weekly basis in pounds recycled per on-campus student.  The university that recycles the most wins!

The Prize:

The winning university will receive the RecycleMania "Bowling Pin Guy" trophy.  It would look great next to the Cortaca Jug!  If we win, Ithaca College will be featured in a half-page advertisement in all the other participating school's newspapers saying how great we are at recycling.  Oh, and don't forget national bragging rights!

With all these Ivy Leaguers competing, we have the opportunity to show them how its done! So put your game face on and START RECYCLING!
