“In September 2016, the City of Lake Worth, Florida initiated a unique recycling awareness contest; Lake Worth’s Refuse Division invited all four elementary schools in Lake Worth, FL to participate in the city’s recycling awareness project, in which the winning artist’s design would be ‘wrapped’ onto two new refuse trucks that were acquired from Scranton, Iowa-based manufacturer New Way.
Students were tasked with developing a poster and slogan that demonstrates the types of recyclable material, showcases school and community pride, and ultimately, promotes recycling within the city. The contest, which ran from October 10, 2016, to November 11, 2016, yielded 154 entries from Barton Elementary and 74 entries from South Grade Elementary.”
