Recycling is the easiest and most effective thing that ANYONE can do to protect natural resources, conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions. Recycling also creates jobs and stimulates our economy. And, friendly competition is a proven way to motivate young people toward adopting sustainable behaviors.
Many schools have been slow to embrace recycling. Through Recycle-Bowl, we hope to galvanize recycling in elementary, middle and high schools across America.
Invigorate student participation through a national K-12 recycling competition.
Recycle-Bowl is separated into three divisions, the School Division, the Community Division and the Open Division. Schools may choose to register for any of the three, based on eligibility requirements, collection practices during the competition, and the school’s ability to meet division standards.
From experienced “veterans” to recycling “rookies,” every school can use Recycle-Bowl to support and improve its recycling efforts.
In the 2014 Recycle-Bowl Competition, schools also have an opportunity to win prizes and receive national recognition and bragging rights as Division Champions!
