America Recycles Day

Bring your recycling bags, and join the fun! Meet us at the Reverse Vending Machine (RVM), in front of The Market grocery store in the Hurricanes Food Court, on November 15 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

ECO Agency, ECO reps, and Green U will compete to fill up the machine with recycled cans and bottles. Top recyclers will win ECO Agency t-shirts and Coca-Cola reusable bags! All proceeds from the recycling will support the Rosenstiel School’s Sustainability Initiative and their amazing green initiatives.


If you are a University of Miami student, faculty, or staff, please take a moment to complete the Sustainability Culture Assessment survey. Your responses will let us know what we're doing right and what we need to improve upon. The best five answers to our open-ended question will win solar chargers and green prizes!
