RecycleMania Tournament kicks off

The Office of Sustainability is partnering with the Facilities Management Division to host the 13th annual RecycleMania Tournament. The competition, which aims to motivate the university community to reduce waste and increase recycling, runs through March 29. Eight campus buildings will compete for the highest recycling rate.

Andrew Lentini, program coordinator for the Office of Sustainability, said he hopes this competition will make recycling forefront in the minds of the campus community.

While everyone on campus is encouraged to participate, Lentini said several academic buildings in particular will compete to help UGA meet its recycling goals: journalism, psychology, chemistry, biological sciences, Miller Plant Sciences, Aderhold Hall, the Lamar Dodd School of Art and the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

The winning building—and its building services staff—will receive prizes.
