Kicking Off The Earth Month Challenge, Sponsored by Republic Services

March 26, 2024

We are excited to announce the launch of the Earth Month Recycling Challenge, proudly sponsored by Republic Services. This nationwide initiative aims to promote sustainability and environmental consciousness among college campuses across the United States. Five prestigious universities, including Elon University, Grand Canyon University, Williams College, George Washington University, and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, have eagerly accepted the challenge to compete for the title of "America's Top Recycler." Throughout April, participating universities will engage in a friendly competition to increase recycling rates on their campuses. The challenge encourages students, faculty, and staff to recycle various materials, including paper, plastics, glass, and aluminum, while also promoting waste reduction and environmental education initiatives.

The ECGO team is thrilled to partner with Republic Services to launch the Earth Month Recycling Challenge. This initiative underscores the importance of sustainable practices and environmental stewardship, and we are excited to see the impact that these universities will make in their communities. Republic Services, a recognized leader in environmental services, is committed to supporting initiatives that promote sustainability and environmental responsibility. By sponsoring the Earth Month Recycling Challenge, Republic Services aims to inspire individuals and communities to take action towards a greener future. The Earth Month Recycling Challenge will culminate in an awards ceremony where the winning university will be crowned "America's Top Recycler" and receive a prestigious trophy, along with recognition for their outstanding efforts in promoting recycling and sustainability.
