The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Section’s Recycling Program has a new interactive game that travels to Delaware middle schools and helps enlighten students about single-stream recycling.
The Bin It to Win It game is part of the Recycling Program’s new “Clean the Stream” recycling campaign.
Bin It to Win It brings together teams of students in fifth through eighth grade and gives them two minutes to sort items by recyclables and trash and deposit them into the proper bin. At the end of two minutes, a recycling referee will review their bins and retrieve any incorrectly-placed items, explaining why the items should or should not be recycled. The team with the most correctly-sorted items will be announced as the winner, with pens made of recycled materials as prizes
