A brief description of the campaign(s):

Each year Agnes Scott College participates in the national competition, RecycleMania. This competition pits Agnes Scott against colleges on a national and regional scale. For two months the college, particularly the student body, is engaged more intensively in our recycling and composting programs. They are encouraged to recycle as much as possible. Other aspects of the campaign educate the campus on zero waste programs, and discourage contamination. We also put our efforts in the context of waste management issues locally and globally.

A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign(s):

Zero waste efforts were the first solid initiative from the Office of Sustainability. RecycleMania is a great way to showcase how well we are doing in the realms of recycling and composting. The lasting effects of RecycleMania are that we have yearly national and regional rankings to report along with our diversion numbers. It is an effective tool to encourage the campus throughout the rest of the year.
