In the spirit of friendly competition and going green, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is hosting Recyclympics. Faculty, staff and students will compete in six Olympic-style, recycling-themed events and win prizes. Crowd-pleasing favorites include the phonebook shot put, plastic bottle free throw, and bottle cap-in-a-haystack.

Recyclympics is an event to promote UT's participation in RecycleMania, in which colleges across the nation and Canada are ranked in an 8-week competition based on the amount of recycling and trash collected each week.
