FAQ - Miscellaneous

  • Does RecycleMania actually collect our recycling?
    No. RecycleMania does not have any role in collecting recyclables or providing services. The program’s purpose is to help raise awareness on campus to encourage students and others to take advantage of the recycling programs organized directly by the college.
  • The population that is shown on our Campus Profile Page looks wrong. How can I change this?
    Population data for all colleges and universities in the United States is automatically included for those schools participating with their entire campus. Read more about how these numbers are determined. Because these numbers are determined using a standardized counting methodology across all schools, alterations are discouraged in most cases where the numbers diverge by a small percent. If the population appears to be off by a significant margin (over 1,000), there may be an error. Contact the Helpline for assistance (843) 278 7686 / helpline@recyclemaniacs.org.
  • I am taking over the reporting for our school from someone else. How do I change the username and password on the account?
    If you still have the previous coordinator’s email and password, use these to login to the account. After logging in, click the link for My Account, from which you can change the email address and other contact information. After this, logout  of the account and bring up the log in page again. Use the “Forgot Password” function to substitute your preferred password.
  • What is the difference between the Pre-Season Trials and the official competition weeks? Do I still have to report data during these weeks?
    Schools are strongly encouraged, but not required to report the weight data beginning with the two weeks of Pre-Season Trials that run from January 20 to February 2. Though weight data from this pre-season period will not be included in the final cumulative rankings, it is an opportunity for schools to become familiar with the reporting process and to ensure they are able to gather the necessary data. Competition Division schools will be placed in an unofficial ranking for each of the weeks. The official competition begins on February 3, 2013.
  • Do I need permission to use the RecycleMania name or logo on promotional materials we create locally?
    Depends.  RecycleMania is a trademarked program belonging to the non-profit RecycleMania Steering Committee (“RecycleMania, Inc”) .  To simply produce flyer, poster  or other forms of signage, no permission is necessary. Participating schools wishing to produce t-shirts, hats or other durable merchandise for non-commercial use may be licensed at no cost by indicating on their intention on the registration profile survey. For all other situations, contact the Helpline at (843) 278 7686 or helpline@recyclemaniacs.org.
