Recycle Rush is a game designed to be played by two alliances of three robots each. On each end of the field there are two auto zones, in each auto zone there are two scoring platforms. In the middle of the field there is a step, and in between the step and the auto zones there is a landfill zone. Robots can score by stacking totes on top of each other onto either of the two scoring platforms. During the first 20 seconds of the match is the autonomous period, where teams program their robots to score points on their own. During the driver-operated period, human players take control of their robots to score as many points as possible before the end of the match. For additional points during the match, robots can stack yellow tots on top of each other then put them on the step for cooperation points. Teams can also stack recycle bins on top of their stacks of totes for more points per tote in a stack. Additionally teams can recycle litter either into the landfill zone or by scoring it in the recycle bins on their stacks.
