The University of Arkansas, along with Razorback Recycling, the Office for Campus Sustainability, and Athletics, competes each year in RecycleMania.
RecycleMania is an intercollegiate competition between North American institutes of higher education to minimize waste and increase recycling rates across campus.The competition lasts 8 weeks each spring, typically from February to the end of March. We compete against the Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools.
We've lead the SEC three times and look to lead again each year! The Office for Campus Sustainability seeks the help of the campus body in beating the SEC by making personal pledges to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We also look for opportunities to speak with students about the competition in the class room setting.

If you're faculty that would like the OCS to come and speak to your class, please email us here: firstname.lastname@example.org. Typically, we require at least ten minutes per presentation. We'll present to your classes as we are available. Presentations begin in mid-January to the end of February of each year.
If you're interested in helping spread the word about RecycleMania, please sign-up for our newsletter by subscribing here. The newsletter will highlight volunteer opportunities throughout the Spring semester and remind you about the competition and how you can get involved.
