KGIB to host School Recycling Challenge

TerraCycle Include USA ZWB
Keep Golden Isles Beautiful recently announced that the School Recycling Challenge will return this year. The focus of the annual challenge is to reduce landfill waste, and KGIB invites the public to support schools in the endeavor, which will last Oct. 5-16. “This year’s challenge again focuses on three items not accepted in our local recycling programs — oral care products, pens/highlighters/markers and cereal bags,” said KGIB executive director Lea King-Badyna. “By recycling these used items that are normally tossed in the trash, we are able to make an immediate impact on waste reduction.” Partners in education, PTAs, businesses and members of the public are invited to take part in the challenge, by collecting and donating the items to participating local public, private and home schools and institutions of higher education.
