Watch those cans and bottles: RecycleMania competition is on

Johns Hopkins is once again competing in RecycleMania, a 10-week challenge for colleges and universities across the country to see who can recycle the most and reduce total waste.

Last year JHU took first place in three categories against participating Maryland schools, and this year the event organizers want to beat what are known as the Ivy League Plus schools.

The entire Johns Hopkins community is asked to do its part to help the university increase its recycling rate and reduce its total waste by recycling all cans, bottles, paper and cardboard in the many designated bins on the various campuses.

For more information about what and where to recycle and to see weekly results, go to the JHU Recycling Web site at www .recycle.jhu.edu.
