Students at Doyle Ryder Elementary School take recycling seriously, and it earned them $5,000 for their school.
Doyle Ryder came in first place Keep Genesee County Beautiful’s 7th annual Recycle-Bowl competition with 10,596.53 pounds of recycling. That’s a lot of trash that won’t end up in landfills.
Keep Genesee County Beautiful collaborated with Flint’s Community Education Initiative, coordinated by the Crim Fitness Foundation in partnership with the Flint Community Schools to host the contest.
All total, Recycle-Bowl Flint schools recycled more than 10,500 pounds of trash during the Recycle-Bowl.
