Recycling Triathlon!

Sustainable schools rule!

Schools, it's your time to shine!

This fall, TerraCycle is giving away thousands of dollars for your schools. From September 1st to November 30th, jump into our Recycling Triathlon with fun ways to raise money by showing us how you promote recycling in the classroom!

You'll be able to earn TerraCycle bonus points for your school by sending us flyers you design, photos of your recycling stations, and qualifying shipments to select programs. In addition to the points you'll earn just from making submissions, each submission will enter you for a chance to win a grand prize!
