Recycling Games at the Lot!

On Friday, October 11, the games began on the stumps with some clear rules of Recycling Do*s and Don’t*s. The kids were all ears; t-shirts and blue bins could be won. And Recycling Lore. IMG_6566

The Salem Recycling Committee presented the facts. And then the games began: three groups ran, yelled, and aimed to get the right recycling materials in the proper bins. Action packed.

Can’t quite remember who won the game, but a great deal of knowledge was learned by all. Not to mention the fun had.IMG_6570 IMG_6571 IMG_6572

After the games, many got t-shirts and some won one of six blue bins. As recycling is now mandatory in Salem, and The Point is its most dense neighborhood, this was a good beginning towards a shift away from the throwing away of all things to a more thoughtful approach to waste management. In fact, as the kids learned, one person’s trash is another’s raw material for entirely new creations!IMG_6576 IMG_6579

The players even helped distribute the information in English and Spanish. If you missed it, the main points are posted on the Point Bulletin Board – go have a look.
