The annual 8-week competition challenges colleges and universities across the United States and Canada to collect the most recyclable materials.
Recycle ALL paper, cardboard, bottles, cans, and all other Single Stream recyclables! Also, compost your food scraps and paper containers when in the Dining Halls and the Stamp Student Union.
Recycle EVERYWHERE ON CAMPUS and the volume will get added to our schools total.

We are looking for educational videos that inspire people to recycle, compost, and/or reduce their waste. Videos must be no more than 30 seconds.
You can choose the content of the video as long as it promotes recycling, composting, or waste minimization activities. We encourage you to be creative, have fun, and think big!
Need some ideas? Here are few: the video could be about how to separate compost at the Stamp Student Union, how to create a “bag of bags” to recycle plastic bags, using the Ozzi container to reduce your dining waste, what is recyclable on campus, or why recycling is important to protect the environment.
Videos will be judged for their content, originality and creativity. Videos will be judged by the RecycleMania Programing Committee. To enter, post your video to YouTube and send us the link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
