Stephen K Gaski Per Capita Classic

Stephen K Gaski Per Capita Classic

The Per Capita Classic is the original and most recognized RecycleMania competition format. It is named in honor of Steve Gaski of Miami University, an early supporter of RecycleMania in its first years. In this category schools compete to see which can collect the largest combined amount of paper, cardboard and bottles and cans on a per person basis. Along with Waste Minimization and the targeted material categories, results are calculated by dividing recycling weight figures with the full time equivalent (FTE) student and staff population of the school.  

Schools may participate by reporting separate weights for paper, cardboard and cans and bottles, or by submitting a one co-mingled number for “single stream” collection programs. Similar to the Grand Champion category, food waste, electronics and other recyclable items are not included in this category.

Results are calculated using the following equation:

Weight of Recyclables = XX.XX lbs.
