At the five-week mark of RecycleMania, the University of Washington continues to lead the Pac-12 in the recycling competition.

The UW's Seattle campus is well ahead of the other Pac-12 schools and is in 31st place out of the 178 schools competing. UW Bothell is doing even better, in 26th place. According to RecycleMania, UW Seattle has recycled more than four pounds of material for every person on campus - a total of nearly 500,000 pounds recycled. 

RecycleMania is a friendly tournament where national college campuses compete to see which can reduce, reuse and recycle the most on-campus waste. The competition lasts through April 1. To learn more about RecycleMania at UW and any events, follow EcoReps and UW Recycling on Facebook.
