Keep America Beautiful announces America’s school recycling champions


Keep America Beautiful, Inc. announced the winners of “Recycle-Bowl,” the first nationwide recycling competition for elementary, middle, and high school students. Schools in 47 states competed, reaching more than 500,000 students across America.

First place went to Marshall Christian Academy in Albertville, Ala., where students recycled 41 pounds of waste per child and reduced their garbage pickups (i.e. landfill waste) by half. If all students in America recycled at the rate of this year’s Recycle-Bowl competitors, approximately 1.8 million tons of material would be diverted annually from landfills – that would be the weight of 156,000 school buses.
