The volunteers at the university, popularly known as the Planet Blue students, are encouraging all the students to reuse their plastic items as much as possible. Furthermore, they are encouraging all the students to use wholesale eco friendly shopping bags for their mundane shopping needs. According to the Ambassador of the Planet Blue team at the campus, the students like to recycle during RecycleMania as it is a competition; however, they feel that recycling is a pointless task. So the Planet Blue members keep conducting campaigns in order to help the students understand the importance of recycling. These volunteers have even put up posters and distributed flyers to promote the recycling initiatives of the university and remind the students of their responsibilities.

At present, the university is on the 9th place in the competition, with a total recyclable value of approximately 408,355 pounds.

The authorities at the university have always tried to reduce the amount of waste on the campus, and they are hoping that their hard work will be reflected in their ranking at the competition.
