12 Schools In PA Recognized In National Recycle Bowl Competition

The results are in from the elementary, middle and high schools competing in Keep America Beautiful’s 2015 Recycle Bowl Competition which took place in the four weeks prior to America Recycles Day on November 15.

These 12 schools in Pennsylvania were part of the completion and this is how they ranked in terms of how much material they recycled in their schools—

-- Albert M. Greenfield School, Philadelphia

-- Riverside Elementary West, Taylor

-- Boyce Middle School, Upper St. Clair

-- Tunkhannock Area School District, Tunkhannock

-- Falling Spring Elementary School, Chambersburg

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.
