The Recycle Challenge, a program of the City of Lexington, is designed to increase participation in the city’s residential, curb-side recycling program, by working through the local public elementary schools. Students at Arlington, Harrison, and Williams Wells Brown elementary schools have been challenged to increase recycling participation in their school districts by 50 percent. In the process, they can earn rewards for their school worth up to $12,000!

In celebration of the kickoff assembly on October 4th, our educators made a short PSA to inspire students to get excited about this year’s challenge. Look out for similar PSAs coming from Lexington elementary schools participating in the Recycle Challenge!
