Encouraging responsible stewardship of our resources on and off campus.
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.
The competition begins Sunday, February 1, 2015 and ends Saturday, March 28, 2015 with recycling numbers per capita posted weekly for eight weeks. Campus activities will take place throughout the competition.
