Zero waste challenge

RecycleMania at uOttawa

Why not try to live waste-free for a week?


In the spirit of RecycleMania, the Office of Campus Sustainability is organising a zero waste challenge. 
During the month of March, choose a time period during which you will do everything you can to live waste-free. This means minimizing what you send to  landfill; you can still get rid of waste by composting or recycling, so long as you recycle and compost properly!

You can take up this challenge individually or with a friend, and choose a time period ranging from a week to the whole month of March. To officially participate in the challenge, simply send your name to and then record your successes on social media via videos, pictures or blogs, adding the hashtag #uOrecycle.

The challenge runs the whole month of March, and the deadline to enter is March 23. Prizes will be awarded during the first week of April to the individual or group who has put in the most effort.
