RecycleRight Mania High School Recycling Challenge

2022 RecycleMania_4 sponsor logos-01

The RecycleRight Mania High School Recycling Challenge is a friendly interschool competition to see which high school body and their fans have the best waste disposal behaviors when out at a school sporting event. 

The overall goal is to encourage proper waste disposal no matter if you are at home, school, work or play. The benefit from this Challenge will be a decrease in waste disposal from high school football games by increasing recycling and waste diversion. A financial award will be offered to the schools that have the best results. 

To take part in the RecycleRight Mania High School Recycling Challenge, participating high schools will be encouraged to promote recycling behaviors at their home football games. The blue bin recyclable material (plastic, aluminum and glass bottles, cans and jars) will be collected in specially marked blue recycle carts and the volume will be totaled and reported at the end of the game. 

We are proud to have Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful as an award sponsor for this Challenge. School are competing for:
