RecycleMania is a friendly competition among college and university recycling programs in North America and Canada. During 8 weeks each spring, schools compete to reduce waste, increase recycling and raise awareness of conservation issues across campus. The official competition runs February-March.
This year, we're focusing on the recycle awareness in the Hub. Pay attention to signage indicating which items go to the USU Recycling Center, which items go to USU's composter, and which items are just trash. When in doubt, throw it out. A little contamination can prevent everything from being recycled or composted. Please make an extra effort to recycle or compost right.
Items accepted for recycling in this competition:
- Mixed and White Paper
- Aluminum Cans
- Steel cans
- Plastics #1-7
We can compost vegetable waste, paper towels, and Dining Service's sugar cane plates. Check the signs for other items.
