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!
The ultimate goal of Recyclemania at Loyola is to reduce our consumption:
- Rethink It! Avoid the "one-time" use of items and excess packaging.
- Reuse and Recycle.
- Divert from landfill
The duration of Recyclemania is a great opportunity to begin incorporating a new positive behavior in order to reduce consumption. And remind others to do their part.
Check out the benefits of recycling:
Reduced 193 Metric Tons of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere
Loyola's recycling during the eight weeks is equivalent to 103 cars off the road
