Student artwork answers the question “Where do you recycle?”
Winners of the Colorado Association for Recycling’s 11th annual recycling poster contest were announced today. The contest allowed students to showcase their artistic talent as well as their commitment to recycling.
This year’s grand-prize winner, Alivia Eikenberg from from Timber Trail Elementary in Castle Rock, chose to draw examples of all the places she could recycle: at home, at the beach, at school, at her friend’s house, at church, and even at the Eiffel Tower.
Congratulations to the 2017 Recycling Award recipients
This year’s awards highlight individuals who go out of their way to implement recycling in their offices and warehouses, media coverage that helped save a community’s access to recycling, and the unlimited dedication of volunteers to increase recycling and waste diversion.
