On Sunday, Notre Dame kicked off a competition that it hopes will renew recycling efforts around campus. Recyclemania is a 10-week, nationwide competition in which more than 400 schools will compete to reduce waste and increase recycling. In order to motivate students to recycle, Notre Dame has decided to make the intercollegiate competition interhall as well.
The Energy and Environmental Issues Committee and student government are sponsoring the event and the competition between dorms is being monitored and tallied by the Students For Environmental Action. There aren’t many rules to this competition, just recycle. Oh, and steal.
