2017 RecycleMania Hall Challenge
About the Challenge
The annual RecycleMania Hall Challenge started in 2011 and happens in the first three weeks of RecycleMania. It's an opportunity for halls to earn Inter-Hall Challenge points and encourages residents to up their recycling game at the start of RecycleMania, helping OSU compete!
The 2017 competition ran February 6-24. All halls won points in the Inter-Hall Challenge, with the greatest number being awarded to the halls in 1st through 5th place. Rankings are based on total pounds of commingled recycling per person in each hall, which is collected once per week over the three weeks. Commingled recycling includes halls' big orange carts (cardboard, glass and trash are not factored into the results).
This year Halsell took the champion title and the most points! Points were awarded as follows:
- 1st: Halsell – 500 points
- 2nd: Bloss – 450 points
- 3rd: ILLC – 400 points
- 4th: Weatherford – 350 points
- 5th: Hawley & Buxton – 300 points each
- All other halls – 250 points each
