UNCW Sustainability has many events planned for the spring of 2015, but one of the most exciting may be Recyclemania.

RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an 8-week period each spring, colleges across the United States and Canada report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week and are in turn ranked in various categories based on who recycles the most on a per capita basis, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling. With each week’s updated ranking, participating schools follow their performance against other colleges and use the results to rally their campus to reduce and recycle more.

How you can help!

  • Clean out any recyclable items you may have such as papers, cardboard boxes, plastic bags, or electronics.
  • Download these flyer1 and flyer2 to send to coworkers/organizations/classes to educate about recycling at UNCW.
  • Spread the word!!!!!
