2020 RecycleMania Tournament logo.

“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.” –

MU Sustainability is excited to announce that Mizzou will be participating in this year’s competition and we’re hoping to be the best recyclers in the SEC as we go up against the University of Kentucky and University of Tennessee! The competition will begin Feb. 2 and end March 29.

Kickoff Event

To start the competition off, we will hold our Recyclemania Kick-Off tabling event on Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Shack. There will be trivia, recycling games, sustainability ambassador meet and greets, and so much more!

Also, be sure to visit our recycling pages so you are up-to-date on how to properly recycle/dispose of your waste before, during and after Recyclemania.
