RecycleMania 2015: February 1st - March 28th

What is RecycleMania? 

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.
