Recyclemania Competition - through March 31

Feb. 5 marked the official start of the 2018 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 an 8-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 on a per capita basis, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling.

In 2017, UTMB ranked third nationwide in cardboard recycling, and second in paper recycling.

This year's competition will last through March 31.

Let's make 2018 the best year ever!

Please call Sustainability at 409-747-2959 for any further questions, or to find out how you can increase the recycling initiatives in your area. Please review Records Management policies, and contact your Department Records Coordinator if you are unsure of what can be discarded.
