  • Egg Harbor City Community School Named National Recycle-Bowl Champion
    March 9, 2016

    A big congrats is in store for Egg Harbor City Community School who was recently named the National Champion of the Keep America Beautiful Recycle-Bowl!

    The school competed against 1,266 schools spanning 45 states and the District of Columbia to win the title.

    Together, students and teachers recycled 50 pounds of materials per person during the competition. The school will be awarded a recycled content plastic park bench, courtesy of Trex, and $1,000 worth of recycling bins from Busch Systems.

    The school began its comprehensive recycling program only three years ago after entering the Recycle-Bowl competition. It has since become a national leader as a result of teamwork, dedication and cooperation among students, teachers and staff.  (Read our blog on how they strengthened their recycling program.)
