Recycling + Waste

RecycleMania

Emmanuel College has participated annually in the RecycleMania Tournament since 2011. This nationwide competition challenges colleges and universities to decrease waste and increase recycling.

What is it?

RecycleMania is a nationwide competition that challenges colleges and universities to decrease waste and increase recycling. Over 8-weeks, schools report their waste and recycling numbers and ranked in a number of categories.

 

This Year's Competition

Mark your calendar! RecycleMania 2016 will run from February 7 - April 2. Stay tuned for more details.

 

Last Year's Competition

In 2015, 394 colleges and universities took part in this eight-week challenge that ignites classic college rivalries, rallying students, faculty and staff to increase on-campus recycling rates beyond their collegiate competitors. Overall, 80.16 million pounds of recyclables and organic materials were recovered, which prevented the release of nearly 129,411 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2E). This is the equivalent to removing 25,375 cars from the roads for 1 year.
