RecycleMania 2019
RecycleMania is a national competition in which colleges and universities set recycling benchmarks, strive to increase recycling rates and work to educate the community about recycling and sustainability. Recycle West has participated in RecycleMania since 2015. The competition will run through Sunday, March 31. 

During this time, faculty, staff and students have an opportunity to directly participate in the university's sustainability efforts by recommitting to recycling on campus. The first step for each person is to take the “pledge,” committing to learn about recycling on campus. After pledging, find out more by attending one of the recycling education sessions during the competition and engaging in recycling and other sustainable practices. Click here for more information or send an email to recycle@westga.edu.
