So just what is the Recycle Bowl?
Recycle-Bowl is a free competition and benchmarking tool for K-12 school recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities. School recycling programs across the nation compete in a race to collect the most recyclables.
The contest runs for four weeks beginning in mid October. Stay tuned for more details and information on each school as our students participate in this fun and environmentally responsible recycling contest.
