Campus Race to Zero Waste

Campus Race to Zero Waste

Help TU Waste Responsibly!

Campus Race to Zero Waste (formerly RecycleMania) is an 8 week long competition among participating colleges and universities across the US and Canada. TU will be reporting waste data weekly into a database that ranks each participating school.

  • Ranking categories include: 
    • Food organics
      • Total amount of compost generated on campus
    • Diversion rates
      • Total reported weights of recyclables and food organics diverted from total waste generated 
    • Per capita classic
      • Only recyclable weights reported

Help us report the most accurate waste numbers by sorting your waste properly. Know Before You Throw and check out TU's Waste Minimization page for more info.
