Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is encouraging Pennsylvania schools to get their students involved in Keep America Beautiful’s Recycle-Bowl, the national competition designed to invigorate students in grades K-12 to participate in recycling.
The objectives of the competition include: new recycling programs established within schools, the increase of recycling rates in schools that currently recycle and the provision of teacher/student educational opportunities about recycling and waste reduction.
The Recycle-Bowl competition begins October 16 and runs through November 15– America Recycles Day.
More than 1,200 schools across the nation competed in the 2016 Recycle-Bowl.
Recyclables recovered during the competition totaled 2.2 million pounds, which prevented the release of 3,150 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent or reducing the annual emissions from 655 passenger cars.
