Scrapbook Photo 01/19/20 - Call For Presentations: 2020 PA Abandoned Mine Reclamation Conference June 24-25 In State College:
Colleges Can Sign Up Now For EPA's 2010 RecycleMania

RecycleMania, with the support of multiple partners and sponsors including the Coca Cola Company, is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to use to promote waste reduction and recycling activities on their campuses.

RecycleMania is a project of the College and University Recycling Council and is supported by the U.S. EPA's WasteWise Program.

From January 17 through March 27, participating schools will be required to report recycling and trash data which will be used to rank them in categories such as who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest overall recycling rate.

With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.

Questions regarding the rules and/or registration process may be directed to the Helpline at 843-278-7686 or send email to:

Pennsylvania has been the #1 State for the last three years, with 48 schools participating in 2009. Their goal is to make it four by increasing that total by 20 percent in 2010!
