RecycleMania is a 10-week contest that challenges colleges and universities across America to promote waste reduction on their campuses. Boston College has been involved with RecycleMania since 2005. In 2014, BC ranked 11 in the Per Capita Category of 461 participating colleges. Among the ACC schools, BC came out #1. Overall - our results netted a decrease of 983 metric tons of CO2, which is equal to 193 cars off the raod or the energy use of 85 households.
