We’re so excited to share this year’s Recycle Rally contest schedule! Here’s a sneak peek. As each one approaches, look out for details on how to get involved.


Compete Within Your School

October 1 – November 30, 2021


Set up a fun competition between classrooms, departments, lunch periods, etc. to determine your school’s recycling champion! Use our Recycle Rally portal to compare recycling totals on your school’s custom leaderboard. Earn a prize for telling us which group won and how they did it. Extra bonus points for submitting a photo of the winning group!


Recycling Stars Essay Contest

December 1, 2021 – January 31, 2022


We know that recycling programs would not be the same without a dedicated group of students who ensure its success. For some, school recycling programs just wouldn’t exist without the passion and drive of a recycling team! By writing a short essay about how these students have contributed to the success of your school’s recycling program, you could win up to $500 to reward your recycling stars! All entrants earn a prize, too. Pizza party, anyone?


3rd Annual Design Contest

February 1 – March 31, 2022


This contest has been so popular, that we’re bringing it back for a 3rd year – bigger and better! Design your own custom recycling bin, door, or bulletin board to raise awareness about your school’s recycling efforts. Share a photo and description with us to earn bonus points and compete for an opportunity to win a cash prize payable to your school. The most innovative creations will be featured on our Facebook page for the final round of voting in April!
