What Are the Dates for Shred-Mania and RecycleMania?

Kent State University’s Division of Human Resources will partner with the Office of Sustainability to host Shred-Mania on Wednesday, March 22, from 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Ice Arena parking lot, as part of the RecycleMania competition. 

Shred-Mania is open to all students, faculty, staff and the Kent community. The event allows participants to recycle unwanted paper documents using a secured, onsite document destruction service. Bring documents, drawings, photos, blueprints, coupons, tickets, checks, magazines, spiral notebooks, hanging folders, paper bags and brochures. It is not necessary to remove paper/binding clips or staples from documents to have them shredded. A limit of five boxes per person for Kent community members applies.

RecycleMania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote waste-reduction activities to their campus communities. Everyone at Kent State can participate in RecycleMania, which is eight weeks of office competitions for faculty and staff held Feb. 5 through Apr. 1 to promote waste reduction activities on campus. The Kent State office or department with the most participation wins a grand prize and bragging rights. Students participate in RecycleMania through the Hall vs. Hall competition and weekly student competitions.

New this year is E-Cycle Drive, a free electronics recycling drop-off on March 15 and 22 from 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. behind the Administrative Services Building, door No. 6, beside the cell tower. E-Cycle includes just about anything with a cord: PCs, laptops, servers and storage devices, mainframes, monitors, docking stations, floppy drives, DVD/CD burners, VCRs, circuit boards, scanners, copiers, printers, cables, wires, extension cords, digital cameras, cellular phones, DVD players, network and telecom equipment. Note: Television sets will not be accepted.
