Saint Louis University recently completed the annual RecycleMania competition, an eight-week intercollegiate event that brings awareness to campus sustainability and aims to increase recycling. This was SLU's fourth year participating and the 2014 competition ran from Feb. 2 to March 29.

This year, the goal was to collect 220,000 pounds of single-stream recycling for the Gorilla category of the competition. SLU met and exceeded this goal with more than 235,000 pounds of recycling collected. The University also competed in the e-waste category and "Greening the Game" category of RecycleMania.

Facilities Services offered thanks to Cintas, MRC, Waste Management and all other sponsors, partners, volunteers, promoters and active recyclers that helped to make this year's RecycleMania competition a success.

Check out the Facilities Services website for results from the competition and an entire recap of the specific events that occurred this year.
