How to harness the natural competitive nature of college kids and increase recycling ? Make it a kind of college challenge.

Enter RecycleMania " ... a friendly competition ... for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities ... Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables, the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate. ... participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.

" ... a project of the College and University Recycling Council (CURC) ... Staff administration for RecycleMania is provided by the National Recycling Coalition (NRC). [a] non-profit advocacy group with members that span all aspects of waste reduction, reuse and recycling in North America.
