RecycleMania 2008 coming soon!
Sign up now

Last year Rutgers drew broad acclaim, in a national competition, for our collective efforts to conserve the environment. In 2008 we're looking for even greater glory.

RecycleMania is a friendly ten-week competition among colleges and universities to determine which institution has the best recycling rates across the country. RecycleMania's goal is to increase awareness and involvement in campus recycling efforts. Schools compete by measuring the weekly amount of paper, containers (plastic, glass, and cans), and cardboard collected for recycling during a 10-week period from January 27 to April 5. The school with the largest cumulative total wins.

Born out of a challenge between Ohio University and Miami University in 2001, RecycleMania grew to 93 competitors in 2006, and to 200 in 2007. The Rutgers University Libraries are a proud cosponsor of this initiative and we encourage all Rutgers faculty, students, and staff to recycle and help Rutgers rank among the program's top competitors.
