The 2020 Keep Golden Isles Beautiful School Recycling Challenge was a big success thanks to the efforts of the 14 participating schools and contributing public. Focusing on non-traditional recyclables not currently accepted into local recycling programs, the participating schools collected 144 pounds of nontraditional recycling in 2020! Students kept cereal bags, writing implements and oral care products out of the landfill and learned about waste reduction and recycling in the process. All collected items will be shipped to TerraCycle for recycling.
