Ready, Set, Recycle!

For the second year in a row, Israeli schools are participating in a recycling competition called “Recycle Time 2008” to see which school recycles the most bottles and cans. 

The four month educational program and competition – which has been taking place in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ashdod, Rishon Lezion, Kfar Saba, Beer Sheva, Rahat, and Modiin – began in December and is now coming to an end.

The competition is being sponsored by Collection for the Environment (אל”ה), Discount Bank, and Zman Maariv.

The money raised from the recycling deposit refunds for the bottles and cans will be returned to the schools and the winning school will be given prizes as well. 

Last year the competition was held in Tel Aviv alone and 76 thousand beverage containers were collected. 

The “Giborei Israel” (Heroes of Israel) school took first place, with a total of 12 thousand containers.

My money’s on Tel Aviv.
