Recyclemania is officially underway at the College.

An eight-week recycling and waste reduction competition between over 400 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, Recyclemania began in 2001 as a challenge between Ohio University and Miami University.

Until March 30, Union will report the weekly trash and recycling amounts and will be ranked in various categories over the eight-week period.

The categories are as follows: Grand Champion, Per Capita Classic, Waste Minimization, Gorilla Prize, Paper/Corrugated Cardboard, Bottles and Cans, Food Service Organics and Electronics.

National recognition is provided to the winning school in each category through a press release and each school is awarded a trophy.

Union has won first place for two years in a row in two categories: Corrugated Cardboard and Per Capita Classic.
