I just received this press release from CofC – way to go!

Starting January 28, 2008, the College of Charleston will participate in the 10-week RecycleMania challenge, competing against more than 200 universities across the country. Specifically, students and employees at the College will compete in the targeted materials competition, the per capita paper competition, the per capita corrugated cardboard competition and the per capita bottles and cans competition.

To kick off RecycleMania, students and administrators at the College have created a week of events to help focus attention on issues that pertain to recycling and sustainable practices in general. This series of events—dubbed Eco-Week—will run from January 28-February 2.

To begin the week, the BioTour Bus, an educational, non-profit initiative that is traveling around the country, will stop at Physicians Promenade on Monday, January 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to educate the campus community about renewable energies, climate change and peak oil. Also during the week, students, faculty and staff will have numerous opportunities to get involved in environmentally oriented activities, including an all-day trip to Columbia to lobby South Carolina legislators on environmental issues; a viewing of the film Kilowatt Ours; and a unique, hands-on experience entitled ‘Dumpster Diving Dinner if you Dare.’ A full schedule of events for Eco-Week is available online at the College of Charleston Chapter web page on
RecycleMania is a friendly competition among college and university recycling programs in the U.S. It provides campus communities with a fun, proactive activity in waste reduction. The main goal of this event is to increase student awareness of campus recycling and waste minimization. All participating schools are required to report measurements on a weekly basis in pounds. RecycleMania began in 2001 as an effort to recycle more waste from campus residential areas. As the competition evolved, it expanded to allow colleges to participate with only their residential areas or to expand their scope to include the entire campus.

RecycleMania at College of Charleston is being promoted by the Sustainability Committee and Alliance for Planet Earth.
