The most successful examples of school participation in RecycleMania come from those that build teams with stakeholders across campus. Involving students and staff from other areas of campus can help to ensure buy in and support from those areas and be a means to leverage additional resources to promote the school’s involvement. This acts as an advisory group to help plan the campaign and to coordinate their respective department’s involvement supporting the program. Separately, you may have a core team of student volunteers or education staff that is involved in the day to day activities.
Some potential groups to include in your team planning:
- Facilities or physical plant dept.
- Student environmental clubs
- Residence hall council
- Student govt. association
- Dining facilities
- Athletics dept.
