RecycleMania is a friendly benchmarking tool for university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over an 8-week period starting February 1st to March 28th colleges across the United States report the amount of recycling and trash collected each week. With each week’s updated ranking, participating schools follow their performance against other colleges and use the results to rally their campus to reduce and recycle more. So make sure you recycle and get CSUN on the map!!!
Caught Green Handed
Caught Green Handed takes place concurrently with RecycleMania during the Spring Semester. Caught Green Handed is a fun way to reward students for recycling. The way to win a prize is to get caught recycling by one of our Outreach team members. If our team missed your action you can snap a quick selfie and post it to a social media site #ASRECYCLING #CSUNAS and stop by our office for a prize. Our office is located in the University Student Union.
My Actions Challenge
My Actions is another component of RecycleMania that rewards CSUN students who use social media to promote their sustainable action on campus. My Actions is a part of the 3R Challenge where students are asked to take part in use of hash tags and social media as a platform. During the Spring Semester, more information, such as hashtags of the week will be announced.
America Recycles Day
In the month of November, Associated Students Recycling Services at Cal State Northridge host an annual America Recycles Day event. Through interactive games, crafts, and great giveaways students will learn about what America Recycles Day represents on a national, as well as the resources CSUN offers to recycle on campus.
