2015 RecycleMania

2015 RecycleMania Tournament 

Baylor College of Medicine is currently ranked as the top medical school in the country for recycling based on RecycleMania 2014 results! Help us keep our title, recycle even more in 2015, and keep waste out of the landfill. Last year Baylor recycled 96,777 pounds of material during the 8-week challenges – that averages out to about eight pounds per person/per week!

The RecycleMania 2015 competition runs for eight weeks, from Feb. 1 to March 30. Baylor is one of over 600 colleges competing nationwide.
