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 2014 rankings: 24 out of 144 in Paper,, 54 out of 256 in Cardboard, 73 out of 140 in bottles & Cans
RecycleMania 2013 rankings: 31 out of 164 in Paper, 32/162 in Cardboard, 93/365 in Bottles and Cans
RecycleMania 2012 theme was “The Spirit of Recycling”; our team created a little video: click here to view MUSC Recycles Right!

Starting Feb 3 MUSC will be attempting to collect the largest amount of recyclables. 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.
