RecycleMania is a friendly competition among college and university recycling programs to see who can waste less and recycle more. Over an 8 week period during the Spring semester, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to 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 recycling rate. Visit Recycle Tulane on Facebook to see weekly results!
Building Captains Needed for 2014 RecycleMania Residence Hall Challenge
Looking for a resume-building leadership experience that allows you to make a difference in your community? The second annual RecycleMania Res Hall Challenge is seeking Building Captains for this year’s competition, which will run from February 3-23. You can develop as a leader while learning about sustainability. Building Captains motivate and organize their fellow residents to recycle, reduce waste, and save energy during the competition. Between one and four building captains will be selected for each residence hall, depending on the size of the residence hall. This will be a short-term commitment that provides an opportunity to try out new leadership and communication strategies, and get more involved with sustainability at Tulane.
Building Captains are still needed for a number of residence halls. To apply, send an email expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
