The students and teachers at Woodlawn Elementary School were rewarded with $300 and an official TerraCycle collection bin through the Lunch Kit Regional Rally, a contest sponsored by TerraCycle and Lunchables Lunch Combinations.

The school won simply by recycling traditionally non-recyclable waste through the Lunch Kit Brigade, a free recycling program that accepts lunch kit plastic trays, lunch kit plastic lids, lunch kit plastic film and outer wrapping, and lunch kit contents packing, regardless of brand.

For each piece of waste collected through this free program, the students and teachers at Woodlawn Elementary School earn points that can be put toward charity gifts or converted to cash and paid right back to the school. TerraCycle recycles the collected material into various products, including trash cans, picnic tables and watering cans.
