We at MantraMeds ask you to encourage your alma matter to sign up for RecycleMania! Registration is open until January 20, 2012
RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables,the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate. With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.
Whether the goal is to win the national award or simply get students excited about reducing waste, RecycleMania is a winner for all colleges involved!
The official dates for the 2012 tournament have been set! Preseason practice weeks will run January 22 to February 4. The official competition will kick-off on February 5 and extend 8 weeks to March 31!
