RecycleMania is Underway

RecycleMania, a two-month national college and university recycling competition, officially kicked off for 2011 on February 6th (and runs through April 2nd). To ramp up the RecycleMania enthusiasm, a group of University Sustainability Advocates put together a terrific video about UVa Recycling. Watch it here.

...Now that you've viewed the minute-long clip and been inspired, here are some more details you might find to be of interest: UVa is participating in the competition division, so it is actively competing against other participating schools (some schools choose to simply benchmark their participation), and is particularly targeting its results in the paper, corrugated cardboard, bottles and cans, and food service organics categories. This year RecycleMania has also added an e-cycling category in which UVa will benchmark its progress.

Recycling is easy at UVa! The key point to remember is that if a piece of plastic has a recycling symbol on it, no matter what the number, UVa Recycling will accept it. For more tips on recycling on Grounds, take a look at the Recycling page on the UVa Facilities Managerment website.
