RecycleMania is a two-month national competition that challenges colleges to find new, innovative ways to reduce waste and recycle more. Each school competes by measuring their waste and recycling every day. 

During RecycleMania 2017 Tulane averaged 8 pounds of trash per person per week and 0.5 pounds of recycling per person per week. By using reusable water bottles, bags and food containers, you can reduce your waste! Check out ways that Tulanians reduced and recycled during the competition below.
