RecycleMania is a yearly intercollegiate recycling competition held between nearly 200 colleges and universities. The goals of RecycleMania are to educate faculty, staff, and students about waste reduction. Schools are ranked against each other based on our recycling, composting, and landfill data in addition to the number of people who get involved with programs.
UT Recycling’s 14th annual RecycleMania will emphasize the 5R’s of waste reduction:
- Refuse what you do not need.
- Reduce what you do need.
- Reuse what you consume.
- Recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce or reuse.
- Rot (compost) the rest.
