Avis Elementary in Jersey Shore collected enough to be listed in the Community Division Rankings by recycling material in their school and from their community.
Nearly 700,000 students and teachers participated in Recycle-Bowl nationwide recovering a total of 4 million pounds of material, which prevented the release of 5,726 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2E). This reduction in greenhouse gases is equivalent to the annual emissions from 954 passenger cars.For more information, visit the Recycle Bowl Competition webpage.
