One month of RecycleMania numbers are in, and the University of Washington continues to lead the Pac-12 by a wide margin.

Halfway through the eight-week competition, UW's Seattle campus has a recycling rate of 54.66 percent. The closest Pac-12 school is Stanford, at just over 43 percent. UW's Seattle campus is 29th overall among the 172 schools participating, and UW Bothell is just ahead in 27th place.

 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. The student group EcoReps and UW Recycling have been holding outreach events on campus to let students know about proper recycling and composting practices, including a table at this last weekend's gymnastics meet. To learn more about RecycleMania at UW and any events, follow EcoReps and UW Recycling on Facebook.
