Recycle at Ohio University
RecycleMania 20th Anniversary!
This year, RecycleMania is celebrating their 20th anniversary! All of this started just twenty years ago when Bobcats and Red Hawks decided to use their famed rivalry and create a competition to see who could recycle the most out of an 10-week period. Over the span of twenty years, RecycleMania has grown to become more than just a competition between two schools, but a competition nation wide.
For those who are curious about who won the GameDay Recycling Challenge last semester, it was us! We successfully diverted a total of 92.9%, securing first place! Read all about it here.
