You may know that it’s important to recycle, but do you really know how to recycle?
That’s the question that was asked of local students in the “Recycle Right!” Activity Book Contest conducted by the Frederick County Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) from February through April. The program was open to all local K-12 students (public, private and home school), and invited participants to learn more about the recycling process, then use their knowledge – and their creativity – to help educate our community about the importance of recycling the right materials in the right way.
