The Leaderboards.

Recycle Rally schools can compare their year-to-date collection totals vs. other schools across the nation by searching our leaderboards. Select which league you want to view and then you may sort by city, state, or school name.

*Schools that are located in ME, NY, MI, VT, MA, HI, IA, OR, CT, CA and where prohibited will not rank on the leaderboards as the Annual Collection Leaderboard Contest is void in these states. See official rules in the Resource Library.
