RecycleMania is a recycling competition among colleges and universities across the United States. This event was started in 2001 as a friendly competition between Ohio and Miami Universities. This effort was designed to create a competition between colleges to inspire an increase in participation in campus recycling programs. The competition is organized and operated by university recycling coordinators and supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's WasteWise program. RecycleMania also serves as a benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities.
Join the mania, this is a great opportunity to boost your campus recycling effort and gain some great media attention and design creative educational campaigns. Many schools have used Recyclemania as a kick-off to start a recycling program on campus.
In 2010, the UO and OSU created a Recycling Civil War to run alongside the national RecycleMania competition.
Both schools compete against each other to find out which campus can recycle and compost the highest
cumulative pounds per person in the 10-8-week Civil War. To commemorate the victory,
the winning campus gets to keep the RecycleMania UO vs. OSU Civil War Trophy
(made entirely out of scrap and reused materials) for the year.
