Dear UNT community,
This week marks the kickoff of RecycleMania, an annual competition among universities in the U.S. and Canada that measures and compares campus waste reduction efforts over an eight-week period from Feb. 2 to March 28. RecycleMania is designed to engage students, staff and faculty in sustainable everyday practices to reduce items sent to the landfill and make recycling and waste reduction accessible and meaningful.
UNT competes in the Stephen K. Gaski Per Capita RecycleMania Challenge, which means we'll measure and report the weights of paper, cardboard and bottles/cans recycled on campus on a per person basis each week. Our participation in RecycleMania is made possible by the We Mean Green Fund.
Please challenge yourself to partake in RecycleMania efforts during the next eight weeks.
Each week, RecycleMania will feature social media challenges and incentives, waste reduction tips and events focused on one of the “8 R's of Reducing Waste” (Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Refurbish, Repurpose and Recycle).
