City of El Monte Sponsors School Recycling Contest

The City of El Monte is holding its annual CRV recycling contest among elementary, middle, and high schools, now through January 24, 2014. During this time, schools throughout El Monte will compete to see which can collect the most CRV beverage containers for recycling. CRV beverage containers include water bottles, soda cans, juice bottles, glass bottles, and 2-liter bottles. The City of El Monte will issue cash prizes to the top three recyclers. Last year’s participants collected and recycled 1.5 tons of CRV materials!

All El Monte schools are encouraged to participate in this contest and teach students the importance of recycling. Residents and businesses are encouraged to donate their empty beverage containers to participating schools.

The City of El Monte is pleased to help its schools raise much needed funding for education, while raising awareness about resource conservation. For further information, please contact 626-332-7514.
