Call for schools to enter glass recycling competition

THE Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) has kicked off 2017 the green way by launching this year’s Annual Glass Recycling Schools Competition.

TGRC invites schools to get involved and make a difference in the environment by participating and doing their part in reducing their carbon footprint, while standing a chance of winning great cash prizes.

TGRC’s CEO, Shabeer Jhetam said, “Schools wishing to participate will need to request a glass bank for their school. This will be where the community will be able to deposit their glass bottles and jars for recycling. The presence of a glass bank encourages parents, learners, teachers and local residents to engage in responsible recycling behaviour by separating their recyclables.”

In addition to a glass bank, TGRC will supply curriculum compliant material to enable teachers to facilitate a holistic view of the glass recycling process for their students.

The schools that collect the highest tonnage of glass in each of the specified regions will win monthly prizes of up to R1 500 and annual cash prizes of up to R30 000 for their schools. The competition closes in October. Schools can still enter throughout the year, as they will be in line to win monthly cash prizes as well.
