Event Description:
Recyclemania is an annual competition between recycling programs on college campuses in the United States and Canada. It encourages individuals to not only recycle more but also to consume less and minimize waste. ETSU will once again participate in this event by holding the Residence Hall Challenge, a friendly competition between campus residents to see which hall can recycle the most plastic bottles and aluminum cans. At the end of an 8 week period (from February 3rd to March 31st), the top three halls will receive prizes (1st Place - $500, 2nd Place - $300, 3rd Place - $100). Recyclemania is not confined to the residence halls! This is a time for everyone on campus to consider what they purchase, use, and throw away or recycle. ETSU’s overall recycling rate hovers around 20 percent. The challenge for the campus is to improve upon the amount of waste recycled at this time last year and to increase our overall recycling rate. During Recyclemania 2012, the campus recycled 122,000 pounds of waste, and this year’s goal has been set at 140,000 pounds. Be on the lookout for the Recyclemania arrow which will be placed near Borchuck Plaza and will indicate the amount of items recycled since the start of the competition.
