From January to March 2010, OHSU will participate in the national campus RecycleMania competition! RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate. With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.
Watch for exciting upcoming opportunities for involvement in RecycleMania! Please join us in decreasing waste generated on-campus by reducing, reusing and recycling. Together, we can create a more sustainable campus community at OHSU!
