Are you looking for a fun and creative way to increase school recycling participation in your community? Keep America Beautiful’s, third annual, “Recycle-Bowl,” is a comprehensive nationwide recycling competition for elementary, middle and high-school students. Open to all schools, the incentive-based recycling competition kicks off again this October and registration is now open on the Recycle-Bowl website at http://recycle-bowl.org. The first 1,000 schools to register will receive a Recycle-Bowl coordinator toolkit. The competition runs from October 21 through November 15, culminating on America Recycles Day. Participating schools will track and report how much recyclable material they collect for a chance to win prizes.
Email Dan Powell the Upstate’s local contact for Recycle-Bowl or check the Recycle-Bowlwebsite for more details and to find a school that is participating near you.
