Loyola University Chicago

Institute of Environmental Sustainability


RecycleMania is a ten-week nationwide recycling competition of colleges and Universities across the country. Each year, Loyola keeps moving up the ranks as it competes to reduce waste and apply best recycling practices on-campus.

Each year, RecycleMania's organizing body calculates Loyola's reduction of various environmental impacts as a result of our commitment to recycling. For example, in 2012, RecycleMania calculated that our recycling efforts: 

  • Reduced 193 Metric Tons of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere
  • Loyola's recycling during the eight weeks is equivalent to 103 cars off the road
