RecycleMania national championship on the line

February 2, 2009

Colorado State University is competing with more than 500 colleges and universities across the country in the annual collegiate recycling competition. Last year, CSU clinched 2nd place in the nation - and we're aiming for the No.1 spot in 2009.

Become a recycling MANIAC

More than 500 colleges and universities are competing in RecycleMania 2009, the most in the competition's history. Of those schools, 333 have registered for the Competition Division (the whole campus division), and 177 have registered for the Benchmark Division (partial campus division).

Institutions from small, two-year community colleges to Ivy League universities will vie for the 2009 recycling champion title. The competition runs through March 28, 2009.

Think before you toss!

Did you know that CSU has single stream recycling, which means that all your recyclable items (from paper to cans to cardboard) can be placed in your recycling bin?

Review the complete list of acceptable and unacceptable items.
