City of Valparaiso Launches Contest to Promote Recycling
The City of Valparaiso’s Public Works Department is launching an innovative contest to promote recycling efforts. All schools within Valparaiso city limits are eligible to compete in the “Cap-etition” by collecting plastic bottle caps. The top ten participating schools will receive a recycled plastic chair which transforms the recycled bottle caps into a giant-sized hand.
Participating schools may collect caps until April 16. Each participating school must collect a minimum of 400 pounds of caps to be eligible for the prize. Awards will be presented at the city’s annual Earth Day Celebration on April 21. Schools may get involved by contacting Kimberly Sut at Valparaiso Public Works, firstname.lastname@example.org or 219-462-4612. The community may get involved by donating their plastic caps to participating schools. For more information please see the links below.
