Missouri State University's Residence Life and the Housing and Dining Services Sustainability Committee will present RecycleMania February 2 through March 31 to encourage recycling on campus and throughout the community.
RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking too 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 captia 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.
