What is RecycleMania?

RecycleMania is a friendly 10-week recycling competition between more than 600 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. During the competition, schools report the amount of recycling and trash collected. Each week schools are ranked in various categories, directly competing with other schools. You can learn more at the RecycleMania website.
