RecycleMania is a national tournament that promotes waste reduction and recycling initiatives on campuses across the country. The 8-week competition allows colleges and universities to benchmark and compare waste diversion efforts. Join us for the annual RecycleMania tournament to learn more about recycling on campus and help foster a community of avid recyclers and sustainability stewards.
