Christina Cole, a junior at the University of South Carolina runs through an obstacle course during RecycleMania Wednesday.
The event kicked into full gear on the USC campus with the Recycle Olympics. Students played games, including a shot put with telephone books, bottle toss, the obstacle course, newspaper hat making and recycling sorting.
It was all designed to demonstrate which items are destined for the recycling bin. The 8-week RecycleMania competition is designed to increase recycling and raise awareness of conservation issues across campus.
