RecycleMania is Happening Now!

Ames, IA- It's RecycleMania time! Never heard of it? RecycleMania is an international recycling competition where the best sustainable colleges compete to show their stuff. The Iowa State Department of Residence, along with the GreenHouse Group, will be putting our ‘green’ on the line to see where we stack up against some of the best schools in the country! Help support us by participating and spreading the word to everyone you know who lives on campus.

What do I need to do? Make sure that you clean out all recyclable materials that you have and place in the appropriate bins where you live.

How long is the competition? The competition starts January 17th and ends April 2nd.

What do we get if we win? We are in the benchmarking division, but based on this year’s run, if we enter the competition division next year, we can win a permanent award, recognition at national recycling conferences, and bragging rights over division rivals!
