RecycleMania is a national competition, sponsored by college campuses, to promote waste reduction and awareness. The RecycleMania group at Boise State University (BSU) collected cardboard from the Student Union Building (SUB) for three days in order to give BSU students a visual representation of how much cardboard is produced and recycled from the SUB in one week. Weekly recycled material totals across campus were obtained by BSU Recycling Services and reported to the RecycleMania website for a national competition. Recycling totals from before/after the RecycleMania event were calculated in order to determine whether or not the RecycleMania project had an impact on students’ recycling habits at BSU.
