Mission Statement

UNLV Rebel Recycling Program's Mission Statement:

The Rebel Recycling Program is committed to providing the campus with comprehensive waste reduction, recycling, and resource management in an efficient, timely manner. The foundation of our mission is based on the three "R"s:

  • REDUCE the amount of things you throw away.
  • REUSE the things you have until they can no longer be reused.
  • RECYCLE once you have completed the first two "R"s.

UNLV's Mission Statement

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is a research institution committed to rigorous educational programs and the highest standards of a liberal education. We produce accomplished graduates who are well prepared to enter the work force or to continue their education in graduate and professional programs. Our faculty, students, and staff enthusiastically confront the challenges of economic and cultural diversification, urban growth, social justice, and sustainability. Our commitment to our dynamic region and State centrally influences our research and educational programs, which improves our local communities.

Our commitment to the national and international communities ensures that our research and educational programs engage both traditional and innovative areas of study and global concerns. UNLV’s distinctive identity and values permeate a unique institution that brings the best of the world to our region and, in turn, produces knowledge to improve the region and world around us.

UNLV is committed to and driven by these shared values that will guide our decision making:

  • High expectations for student learning and success;
  • Discovery through research, scholarship, and creative activity;
  • Nurturing equity, diversity, and inclusiveness that promotes respect, support, and empowerment;
  • Social, environmental, and economic sustainability;
  • Strong, reciprocal, and interdependent relationships between UNLV and the region around us;
  • An entrepreneurial, innovative, and unconventional spirit.


The UNLV Rebel Recycling Program is committed to diverted as much as possible for the landfill to beneficial use. We are competing in the national Game Day Challenge. The Game Day Recycling Challenge is a friendly competition for colleges and universities to promote waste reduction at their football games. The competition is run by a partnership of the College and University Recycling Coalition (CURC), RecycleMania and Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and is supported by EPA’s WasteWiseprogram.

During the challenge, colleges and universities implement waste reduction programs during home football games. Schools track and report waste reductions and disposal data that is used to rank the schools.

We scored well last year. We were in the top three in four out of five categories, and we won one of the categories. We only entered one game. This year, we are entering all seven games. We need help to continue to improve this great program.
