Antioch University surpassed its 2010 record by winning second place nationally in Recyclemania’s Grand Champion category. AUS competed with 287 other schools in various categories, coming in fourth for Waste Minimization.
RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs in the United States and Canada. RecycleMania helps 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. With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools can watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.
The dates for this year’s competition were Sunday, Feb. 6 through Saturday, April 2, 2011. This is the second year that AUS participated.
