RecycleMania 2018

RecycleMania Tournament

RecycleMania 2018:  February 4th - April 1st 

It's baaaackkk... RecycleMania is here again and this year EKU is hoping to improve upon our ranking from last year  

We will be comparing our recycling and landfill waste totals against other regional and National Universities, including the likes of Berea College, Centre College, Morehead State, NKU, UK, & U of L - therefore bragging rights are at stake!

Do your best to reduce your waste to landfill - read up on "What goes where?" and recycle properly.

Here's how the competition works:

Each week we will be reporting our weights of landfill waste, recycled paper, bottles and cans over the 8 week competition.

We will be competing on the following criteria:

  1. Landfill diversion rate (%)

  2. Total weight of recyclables recovered (lbs)

  3. Total weight of recyclables recovered per person (lbs/person)

Get involved:

  • Recycle to the maximum extent possible across campus.  

  • Participate in resident hall recycling programs and activities.

  • Be on the lookout for tips and fun facts from the Office of Sustainability -> follow us on Twitter @Sustainable_EKU
