Contest with SARCAN Recycling

Category: School Recycling Support
Time frame: October 2018–June 2019
Location: Saskatchewan
Status: Completed

Saskatchewan has a deposit return system for all beverage containers (including milk). From October 2018 to May 2019, students were encouraged to recycle those containers, especially juice and milk cartons, at their schools and in their communities. CCC sponsored SARCAN Recycling’s contest entitled The Great Carton Search. The Contest was launched concurrently with the launch of a new website – SARCAN School – which enables schools to order recycling bins, set fundraising goals, track progress towards the goals, and informs students about the environmental impact of recycling. A press release pertaining to the initiative is available.
