EUGENE, Ore. — There’s another battle going on between the Ducks and Beavers back here at home.
The University of Oregon and Oregon State are competing in a national competition called Recyclemania. Both schools have participated for a number of years but made a civil war out of it in 2010.
“One thing the school isn’t having trouble getting people behind is the rivalry between the two schools and football and all that. So, getting the rivalry involved and making a competition is a good idea and good way to get people involved,” said University of Oregon student, Andrew Hardt.
OSU was the champ for the first three years and the Ducks finally brought the trophy to Eugene last year. They collected over 340 tons of material together in 2013.
