Emory vies for recycling crown in RecycleMania competition

Starting Jan. 27, Emory will compete in RecycleMania, an initiative aimed at boosting recycling awareness while also encouraging conservation.

Emory, the only school in Georgia to participate, has joined campus recycling programs across the country in a competition to see who can collect the most recyclable materials while curbing the level of trash. Over a 10-week period, campuses compete in different contests to see which institution can collect the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables and the least amount of trash per capita.
In its second year of participation, Emory is competing in two categories: the Per Capita Classic, in which the school that collects the most recyclables wins; and the Waste Minimization competition, which focuses on overall waste reduction. Schools will compete to see who can generate the lowest waste per capita, which includes both trash and recycling.

During the competition, which ends April 7, weekly results will be posted on the RecycleMania Web site, www.recyclemaniacs.org. For more information, contact Claire Wall at Emory Recycles, 404-712-8921.
