2016 America Recycles Day Poster

America Recycles Day Poster Contest

Check back in Fall 2017 for details

RethinkWaste is calling on all 3rd-5th grade students in our service area* to show off their artistic talent in our third America Recycles Day Poster Contest. America Recycles Day, held annually on November 15th, is the only nationally recognized day and community-driven national awareness event dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. We are looking for students to create a poster with the theme of recycling.

How do you actively choose to live a recycled lifestyle? At the Shoreway Environmental Center, approximately 82 million pounds of material collected from residents is recycled every year. The recyclables are used as raw materials to remanufacture new products. By recycling, we are conserving resources and keeping materials out of the landfill. America Recycles Day is once a year, but as environmental stewards we should be good to our earth every day! Show us what you do!

The posters must be 8.5 x 14 inches and any medium can be used, including paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils. Bright, rich colors are encouraged. Only one entry per student will be accepted, and posters must include original artwork only.

The first place winner will have their poster enlarged and displayed and used on such items as the side of Recology San Mateo County’s residential collection vehicle in their city, at RethinkWaste’s Shoreway Environmental Center in San Carlos, and on RethinkWaste’s website, newsletters and other educational materials
