RecycleMania

What is RecycleMania?

Recyclemania is a recycling competition among colleges 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!

When is RecycleMania?

RecycleMania 2017 runs from January 22 thru April 1!  Final results will be published April 17, 2017.
