Improve Recycling in PA Schools

- Wednesday, September 02, 2015

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is encouraging educators in Pennsylvania to get their students involved in the Recycle-Bowl competition. Recycle-Bowl is a program designed to invigorate student participation in recycling through a national K-12 recycling competition.

Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization, has announced registration will begin on Aug. 3. Go to to register.

The objectives of the competition include: new recycling programs established within schools, the increase of recycling in schools that currently recycle and the provision of teacher/student educational opportunities about recycling and waste reduction.

The Recycle-Bowl competition begins Oct. 19 and runs through Nov. 15.

“The Recycle Bowl offers a fun way to introduce or expand recycling programs within our schools. Encouraging students to recycle will emphasize the importance of recycling elsewhere,” said Shannon Reiter, president of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “We are grateful to Keep America Beautiful for providing this resource to our local schools.”
