RecycleMania, a nationwide college competition to promote waste reduction, is set to return to the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in February.

UNL participated in RecycleMania in 2014 and over the eight-week period of competition, found a reduction in waste. Now, Jessica Van-Buskirk of Sustain UNL is bringing back the competition with the help of the Office of Sustainability.

Over the eight-week period, UNL will report the amount of trash and recycling collected to RecycleMania who will rank the data compared to all the other participating schools.

Van-Buskirk and other sustainable groups at UNL will organize outreach, events and activities to get UNL buzzing about recycling.

The sustainability community is ready for this exciting opportunity to come back to UNL. Stay tuned for more information about events, how you can help and be sure to recycle.
