Recyclemania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an 8-week period each spring, colleges across the United States and Canada report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week and are in turn ranked in various categories based on who recycles the most on a per capita basis, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling.

FSU's recycling scores for Recyclemania 2014.

  • Paper - FSU placed 14th out of 213 institutions.
  • Bottles and Cans - FSU placed 27th out of 208 institutions.
  • Grand Champion - FSU placed 65th out of 256 institutions.
  • Per-capita Classic - FSU placed 77th out of 362 institutions.
  • Waste Minimization - FSU placed 91st out of 155 institutions.

Thanks to all FSU students, faculty, and staff who recycled and helped us reach our Recyclemania goals!
