Campus Race to Zero Waste

Campus Race to Zero Waste (formerly RecycleMania) is a yearly intercollegiate recycling competition held between nearly 200 colleges and universities during February and March each year.

We work to encourage waste reduction and recycling efforts on campus through education, outreach, and in-person events. Each week we will host “themed” in-person campus events as well as engage in sustainability-minded online education.

The Campus Race to Zero Waste Schedule for 2023 is as follows:
