As part of a national recycling campaign involving colleges and universities across the nation, MUSC commits 8 weeks every year between January and March to “RecycleMania,” with a goal of becoming the top academic recycler and trash reducer in the country. Last year’s competition included 630 institutions representing 6 million students and over 1.5 million staff and faculty. Here are our final rankings; in 2014 we ranked higher in paper and bottles and cans. New this year is the ollection of Food Service Organics: over 70 tons of food waste were diverted to the compost facility and some of it came back to beuatify our grounds and enrich our soil!

RecycleMania provides an incentive to engage our MUSC community in reducing waste and recycling in a fun and friendly way. Your help is needed so please spread the word, print the posters and let your co-workers know! Check this page weekly for updated scoreboard and trivia questions and a chance to earn a prize.
This competition helps create awareness of existing programs and our hope is that it will instill lifelong sustainable habits among MUSC the family.
