RecycleMania Hits Campus as Students Compete in National Competition

At 10:30 pm every Wednesday night, Yeshiva University student volunteers climb aboard large scales holding bags filled with glass and plastic bottles and cans. They subtract their body weight from the total and record the figures. This ritual is an integral part of YU’s participation in RecycleMania, a 10-week, national recycling competition between college campuses. The competition, which runs from January 30 through April 9, involves over 400 schools and seeks to motivate campus communities to recycle more and reduce overall waste.
