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. During RecycleMania, Tulane runs the Residence Hall Challenge, a green competition between dorms. Visit Recycle Tulane on Facebook to see weekly results!
