The University of Southern Mississippi’s Office of Sustainability is sponsoring Recyclethon, with competition ongoing through March 28. Recyclethon is a competition between students, faculty, and staff to see who can recycle the most items by weight within a four-week period, with weights entered into the RecycleMania competition.

First and second place teams are eligible for prizes, with first place team members receiving a Kindle Fire, or equivalent value in Eagle dining dollars. Second place team members will receive a wireless Bluetooth speaker, or equivalent value in Eagle dining dollars.

Recyclable items can be brought to Shoemaker Square each Friday, beginning Feb. 28, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Office of Sustainability staff will be on hand to weigh items and record each team’s placement.  For more information, e-mail christina.foreman@usm.edu.
