Get ready to recycle even more, as Penn prepares for RecycleMania 2012—the annual waste reduction competition between over 600 colleges & universities in the US and Canada.

The competition will kick-off on February 5 and extend eight weeks to March 31. Last year during RecycleMania, Penn recycled nearly 28.9 percent of its waste, finishing just shy of its 30 percent goal, and second only to Harvard (30.6 percent) within the Ivy League.

The Red & Blue remained at the top of the standings in the Waste Minimization category, however, generating only 58 cumulative pounds of waste per capita over the eight weeks.

Stay tuned to the Penn Green Campus Partnership website for updates on RecycleMania 2012, and Like them on Facebook to learn about upcoming events and giveaways.
