Clemson University recycling video selected for national competition
By Taylor Reeves
CLEMSON — A video created by Clemson University Recycling Services and Video Production Services for this year’s RecycleMania competition has garnered national attention as one of the top 10 videos among universities across the country.
The short film, titled “The Spirit of Recycling at Clemson,” was recognized out of 30 submitted Youtube videos as one of the 10 best in the nation. To win the overall RecycleMania video contest, it must receive more “likes” on Youtube than any other top 10 video.
“We are so honored to be included in this year’s RecycleMania video contest. The video is a really fun and easy way to raise some awareness and support for our recycling program,” said Kate Ripley, promotions intern for Recycling Services.
The video competition runs through Monday, March 26, and people can vote for Clemson’s video at thisYouTube address and clicking “like.”
RecycleMania is an annual competition among more than 600 universities nationwide to recycle as much material as possible over a five-week period. Last year, Clemson finished second in the ACC behind the University of Maryland.

As part of RecycleMania, Clemson Recycling Services and CLEMSONLiVE hosted the university’s first ever “Clemson Dirty Jobs” event. Although Mike Rowe and his Discovery Channel television crew were not present to capture the action, 23 students helped make this waste audit possible, producing a total recycling rate of 85 percent.
Last week, Feb. 27-March 2, three teams made up of Clemson students from all walks of life met at the Kite Hill recycling center to do a dirty job: sort trash and save recyclable materials from the landfill. These three teams represented Students for Environmental Action (SEA), the Environmental Engineering graduate program, and the rowing and volleyball teams. Students geared up with haz-mat suits and gloves to tackle more than 1,800 pounds of waste.
