With the start of the new semester comes the beginning of everyone’s favorite competition–the MANIA of RecycleMania has arrived at Tufts! Between February 5 and March 31, Tufts Recycles! interns will be visiting each of the dormitories and university-owned houses to grade each facility on how correctly and thoroughly its residents are recycling. Interns will collect scores twice during the competition–once at the beginning and once at the end–with the goal of bringing out the competitive nature of each dormitory to recycle strong. These two sets of scores will be averaged along with the preliminary scores from last semester in order to crown the campus winners of both the dormitory and small campus house categories!
Check our website frequently to see which dorms and off-campus houses take the lead, as well as to see how Tufts stacks up against the other participating colleges and universities in the competition! You can also visit the official RecycleMania website to learn more about the competition.
The preliminary scores from Fall 2011 are posted below. Congratulations to our winners, the West wing of Metcalf Hall for the dormitories, and 12 Dearborn and the Crafts House for the small university houses!
