RecycleMania 2013 Tests Your 'Green' Spirit
DALLAS (SMU) – The annual RecycleMania competition is back at SMU, and the University’s E-reps (student environmental representatives) are hoping to catch people “green-handed” as they correctly toss items like plastic bottles, paper and aluminum cans into campus recycle bins.
RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an eight-week period each spring, colleges across the United States and Canada report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week and are, in turn, ranked in various categories based on who recycles the most. This year’s competition runs from Feb. 3 – March 30, 2013.
