Looking to take part in something worthwhile during the cold winter months at Ohio University? The 11th annual RecycleMania competition is just around the corner.
From Feb. 6 to April 2, OHIO will compete against more than 600 schools across the nation and abroad to reduce waste and increase recycling. Two weeks of non-binding pre-season trials begin Jan. 23.
Aluminum, glass, cardboard and paper can be recycled in one of the many recycling receptacles around campus.
Students living in residence halls have been provided with recycling containers in their rooms, and all dumpsters on campus have recycling bins beside them, according to Recycling and Refuse Manager Ed Newman. Additionally, he suggested office clean-outs for academic departments.
“We are all part of the team,” said Newman, who cofounded RecycleMania in 2001 with his counterpart at Miami University.
