More than 400 colleges and universities across the U.S. compete in this exciting challenge that encourages faculty, staff and students to recycle! We would love to see you all continue to be a part of this important initiative. Take some time to think about the importance of our environment and how we can Be Spartan Green today! Last year, MSU was the second biggest contributor to Recyclemania amongst the Big Ten! The challenge is focused on recycling white paper, mixed paper, books, cardboard, plastics, household metal, and glass. According to their main website, Recyclemania began in 2001 at Ohio University and Miami University.
