Each year, universities across the nation gear up to participate in the GameDay Recycling Challege, a nationwide competition that challenges universities to boost their recycling and composting efforts during home football games. Hosted by the College and University Recycling Coalition, RecycleMania, Keep America Beautiful and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WasteWise, the challenge requires participating universities to track and report recycling, compost and attendance data for at least one home football game.
In 2016, participating schools recycled, composted or donated a total of more than 2,667,845 pounds of materials, which is a 4.8 percent increase from the previous year.
Earlier this month, we launched a gallery featuring the 2016 GameDay Recycling Challenge diversion rate winners, and now, we are highlighting the challenge’s total recycling rate winners.
