Prior to the start of the official 8 week Tournament, participating schools begin tracking and reporting their weight data to the RecycleMania website as part of two weeks of pre-season “trials”. Results from each of the two pre-season weeks will be published online as an unofficial reference points for program coordinators to get a general idea of where their school places against others for the coming competition. The purpose of the trial weeks is both to help set competition expectations that can help coordinators plan their messaging to their campus, and to allow schools to test their data tracking arrangements before the numbers “count”. Results of the two pre-season trial weeks are not included in the cumulative results of the formal competition.
