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, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling. With each week’s updated ranking, participating schools follow their performance against other colleges and use the results to rally their campus to reduce and recycle more.

Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) is the largest electricity and water reduction competition program for colleges and universities in the world. All participating school hosts a competition in which buildings on their own campus compete against each other to achieve the highest percent reduction in electricity and/or water use during the competition period (in comparison to a baseline period chosen by the school). Schools may also choose to participate in a group competition, in which schools in a region, state, or peer group compete against each other to achieve the highest campus-wide reduction in electricity and/or water consumption.
