What Is RecycleMania? Here's a link the the official Recycle Mania website


See Missouri S&T Stats Here

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 and are ranked amongst all participating institutions in various categories:

GRAND CHAMPION: the school that demonstrates the greatest achievement in both source reduction and recycling

Per Capita Classic:   ranked by collecting the largest amount of acceptable recyclables per person

Waste Minimization: ranked by the least amount of municipal solid waste (including both recyclables and landfill trash) produced per person

Gorilla Prize:   competition to see which school collects the highest gross tonnage of recyclables, regardless of campus population




Waste minimization efforts have already begun on campus.  Be sure to look for recycling bins in every building and do your part to help Missouri S&T reduce its waste!
