Yale Community Competes in Inter-Collegiate Recycling Contest

Yale University faculty, staff and students will compete against their counterparts at 90 other colleges and universities for 10 weeks this spring as a part of Recycle Mania. The inter-collegiate contest will compare not only the amount recycled per person on each campus but also the amount of trash generated. Prizes will be awarded for the school producing the greatest amount of recyclables and the least amount of trash.

Everybody at Yale is participating in Recycle Mania every day through their decisions about recycling or trashing their paper, boxes, cans etc. To have a recycling team visit your office with information, freebies and refreshments, contact Yale Recycling at 432-6852 or e-mail Please let Yale Recycling know what days and times generally work well for you so that we can begin planning.
