America Recycles Day Contest for Schuyler County
Jenna Hicks, Environmental Science Educator
Every year the National Recycling Coalition sponsors a recycling contest to reward those that have been recycling and to encourage others to start recycling. This is the same idea behind the “Save it Schuyler” contest that I am sponsoring this year. The contest will run from October 1– November 15th. Visit our website during this time for a registration form or stop the office to pledge to do your part to recycle.
By filling out one registration, you will be entered into the national, state and local recycling contests. Prizes range from hybrid vehicles and Alaskan Cruises to compost bins and environmentally friendly products.
