CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) – Cleveland High School's green mindedness pays off, with the school winning a $1,000 award in recognition of their efforts.
The 2012 Good Sports Always Recycle statewide school challenge gave each school $1,000 to enhance their environmental efforts. Winners also attended a pre-game tailgate celebration and were recognized on-field during the game.
In 2009, Cleveland High School began partnering with Coca-Cola Refreshments, who provide several large containers throughout the building and outside for recycling all plastic, cardboard, mixed paper, and ink cartridges. The school's recycling totals have steadily increased every year, with over 27,000 pounds of recyclables collected during the 2011-2012 school year.
Through the Good Sports Always Recycle program more than 80 tons of material were recycled at the University of Tennessee's home games during the 2011 football season. The goal for the 2012 season is 100 tons. The UT football portion recycling portion of the program includes 200 recycling bins along walkways leading to the stadium and 1,000 blue recycling bags in tailgate areas.
