OHSWEKEN – Jamieson Elementary in Ohsweken is competing to win a share of $3,200 through the inaugural “Collection Craze” courtesy of Schneiders Lunchmate, and recycling company TerraCycle.
The school is competing to collect the most lunch kit waste, including plastic trays, film, and content packaging, sent to TerraCycle for recycling before May 31. The top 10 collecting schools will win a share of $3,200 in TerraCycle points that are redeemable for cash payment to an organization or school of their choice.
Schools earn one Lunchmate Credit for each shipment of lunch kit waste, including plastic trays, film, and content packaging, sent to TerraCycle for recycling, and one credit for every online vote cast for the school at http://www.terracycle.ca/en-CA/contests/schneiders-lunchmate-collection-craze by May 31.
During the “Collection Craze” contest period, participating schools also have the opportunity to win an extra $1,000 by entering a photo submission sweepstakes draw. All photos must be submitted via TerraCycle’s sweepstakes form.
The first annual “Collection Craze” launched April 1 specifically for schools throughout Canada. The Schneiders Lunchmate Recycling Program recently hit a nationwide milestone of nearly 500,000 units collected and more than $10,000 dollars raised for charity.
The Schneiders Lunchmate Recycling Program is an ongoing activity, open to any individual, family, school or community group. For each piece of waste sent in using a pre-paid shipping label, participants earn points that can be translated into charitable prizes or cash donations to the school or charity of their choice.
