Does the institution hold a campaign that meets the criteria for this credit?:

The name of the campaign(s):

A brief description of the campaign(s):

Recyclemania is a national competition among colleges and universities that provides benchmarking for the level of recycling success on campus.

Bryant has participated in Recyclemania since 2010.

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

A measure of the impact of Recyclemania is indicated by the 2011 results where Bryant achieved a 19.09% recycling rate as compared to the 17% recycling rate Bryant achieved in 2009 (prior to participation in the competition). This shows that the focus on Recyclemania does encourage increased recycling. Although the results for Bryant in the 2012 competition are somewhat confusing, due to a change in management of the program part way through, in the early weeks of the campaign, Bryant's recycling rate exceeded 24% recycling rate as a result of strong marketing on campus for the campaign.
