THE RECYCLE MANIA COMPETITION IS BACK! ...Let's kick some can! 

Be sure to put all recyclables in designated receptacles.

A RECAP FROM LAST YEAR: Recycle Mania raised the stakes in 2007 as the number of participating colleges and universities more than doubled—a record 201 schools from across the country stepped up to compete!

..Keeping the dynasty alive, the West Coast made an impressive showing in the Corrugated Cardboard category. West LA Community College took home the title by recycling more than 50 pounds of cardboard per person, with the Cougars of Cal State San Marcos coming in second.
