Recycling Cart Graphic

Recycling is using items that would be thrown into the trash to make new materials. For example, plastic bottles can be recycled into new plastic bottles or even carpet! By encouraging good recycling habits, we can save landfill space, energy, and natural resources like water and trees.

The Utilities Solid Waste Division invites Orange County students in grades 4 – 7, to write a poem to promote recycling right! Top entries win a prize. Parents and teachers can email Solid.Waste@ocfl.net for the contest rules and entry form. Entries are due by Wednesday, October 6.
