Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB), in conjunction with River Valley Paper Co., is presenting its eighth annual Recycle Bowl competition involving 33 area schools. This mixed paper drive will help celebrate America Recycles Day Nov. 15 and educates the public, encourages recycling and helps save trees.

During this competition, which runs now through Nov. 16, community residents and local businesses are invited to take their mixed paper recycling products, including magazines, phone books, paperboard, catalogs, junk mail, office paper, newspaper and cardboard, to a recycle bin at one of the following schools:
  • Akron Public Schools’ Betty Jane Community Learning Center (CLC), Buchtel CLC, Case CLC, East CLC, Ellet High School, Findley CLC, Firestone Park Elementary School, Forest Hill CLC, Hatton CLC, Helen Arnold CLC, Hyre CLC, I PROMISE School, Innes CLC, Jennings CLC, Resnik CLC, Kenmore-Garfield High School, Leggett CLC, McEbright CLC, Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts, North High School, Sam-Salem CLC, Seiberling CLC and Voris CLC;

  • private schools Chapel Hill Christian School, Emmanuel Christian Academy, Archbishop Hoban High School, Old Trail School, Our Lady of the Elms, St. Mary School and St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.
The bins will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The winning elementary school will receive $250 and a school-wide pizza party in December. The winning middle and high schools will each receive $500. The winning mixed-grade school will receive $250. There also will be a $500 award for the school with the most pounds of paper collected overall and another $250 for the school that has improved the most from 2017 to 2018.
