2015 RecycleMania tournament is the national competition in which college campuses compete over eight weeks to see which can reduce, reuse and recycle the most on-campus waste.
Schools compete in 11 categories to see which recycles the most on a per capita basis; which produces the least amount of waste; and which recycles the largest percentage of their overall waste stream. The competition runs through March 30.
Schools will compete in these categories to see which can recycle the most paper, cardboard, cans and bottles, and food waste on a per capita basis; which can produce the least amount of waste; and which recycles the largest percentage of their overall waste stream. Additional categories recognize successful recycling at home basketball games and call attention to the recyclability of film plastic and scrap electronics.
Clemson University competed against college campuses across the country in Spring 2014 and finished third place overall in the ACC, just behind Syracuse University and the University of Pittsburg. With your participation in recycling and involvement around campus, Clemson will hopefully exceed our 39.276% recycling rate across campus.
