Race 2 Zero Waste - 2023 Mahoney Pearson


Campus Race to Zero Waste (formerly known as RecycleMania) is an annual competition among universities in the US and Canada which measures and compares campus waste reduction efforts over an eight-week period from February to the end of March. Through Campus Race to Zero Waste educational efforts, UM is on a mission to engage students, staff, and faculty in sustainable everyday practices that divert items from the landfill and make recycling and waste reduction both accessible and meaningful. Our campus competes in the Single Stream Recycling Per Capita challenge, which means we'll measure and report the weights of paper, cardboard, and bottles/cans recycled on campus on a per person basis each week. We will be hosting events such as a kickoff event, environmentally themed trivia, a scavenger hunt, and smaller events around campus. For more information, contact ECO Reps Exec team: Reid Jansen and Ulyana Pogibelnaya.

February to March

Every week, we will announce our ranking of Per Capita recycling among other  Florida universities on @sgecoagency
