Rah Rah Recyclemania Cleans Up At A College Near You

The Results Are In - The Creativity Is Right On 

A look at the History and Creative Thinking that goes into RECYCLEMANIA.  Plus the best of the posters past and present!



The 14th College Campus Recycling Competition 
Recyclemania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. The program is a project of the College and University Recycling Council (CURC), managed by Keep America Beautiful in conjunction with EPA WasteWise.

The competition runs from January through March. Over the 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked in each of four different categories. With each week's reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campuses to reduce and recycle more.

According to Recyclemania millions of students & staff in nearly 1,000 Colleges & Universities participated recovering 91 million pounds of material that would have gine to a landfill or landed on streets an in rivers.


The 2014  Recyclemania Event reported the following results:

RecycleMania 2014 results are in. The Wisconsin Grand Champion contest is for the highest cumulative recycling rate. Congratulations to this year’s top five finishers!
• UW-Stout (52.79%)
• UW-Platteville (46.18)
• UW-Oshkosh (46.12%)
• UW-River Falls (34.23%) 
• UW-Milwaukee (33.39%)

At Planetpals, we encourage all colleges to join in! Perhaps it's time for all schools everywhere to follow suit and start a program of their own!

I'd say "May the best school win", but, I think all the schools are winners for participating.
