Recyclemania is a national competition between among universities to measure and compare recycling over an eight-week period. Loyola has competed in Recyclemania since 2009. During the contest, we encourage everyone -- students, staff and faculty -- to PITCH IN! Not sure about what is recyclable or not? The Loyola Recycling Team is out and about on both lakeside campuses to help you learn the best recycling practices.

The ultimate goal of this program is to improve the campus recycling program year-round through a combination of efficient placement of bins, educational signs and most importantly - teaching everyone best recycling practices.

Loyola will participate in Recyclemania 2013. Check back for more details.
