Schools Recycling Contest To Conclude March 31st

The race is heading to the finish line and two local schools are asking for one final push from the community to help them win $12,500 in playground equipment.

Students at Gorin R-III and Scotland County R-I are among a number of northeast Missouri schools trying to collect the largest amount of recyclable goods per student.

The recycling contest, sponsored by the Northeast Missouri Regional Planning Commissions Solid Waste Management Committee, will be concluding Thursday, March 31st.

That definitely will be the final day for the public to place materials for recycling at the schools, said organizer Jana Cline. Most trailers will be removed by 3:00 p.m. that day but you may want to check with the school that day to insure the recycling trailer has not already been picked up.

Cline indicated that the winning school would be announced on Earth Day, April 22nd with a special presentation on the winning campus.

While the inaugural collection process will end this month, Cline reported that many of the participating schools have expressed interest in continuing to offer the recycling trailers for their communities.

Obviously we wont be able to fund the playground prize every year, but we definitely have witnessed excellent support from the schools and a desire to continue the program in the future, Cline said.

Industrial Opportunities, a sheltered workshop organization in Kahoka has handled the recycled goods in Scotland, Clark and Lewis counties. The participating Kirksville schools have used High Hope, a similar outfit centered in Macon.
