    The WE Recycle! Challenge is an annual recycling competition which takes place during the entire month of April. Third grade classes in Solano County are invited to earn money for their classroom by collecting cans and bottles with the CRV symbol and exchanging them at the nearest Certified Recycling Center. The classes that recycle the most cans and bottles in the month-long timeframe will earn the title of Solano County Super Recyclers!

    Winning classes will also be celebrated on social media and in regional news stories, and will receive a special visit and prize from the Solano RCD! All participating classrooms get to keep the CRV money they raise and can use it however they like - classes can buy supplies, fund a field trip or celebration, or make a donation to a charity. All participants are invited to document their recycling efforts with photos posted to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #WERecycleSolano!

    This year's challenge will take place from April 1st - April 30th 2024. To participate download the attached logs, teacher letter with detailed instructions, and recycling guide to find a CRV recycling center near you. Throughout the challenge month, classes will log how many CRV recyclables were exchanged at the recycling centers. Logs and CRV receipts will be due by Monday, May 6, 2024. Winners will be determined by mid-May.

    If you have any questions about the challenge or how to participate, please email Program Manager Lee Ascencio at .

    Congratulations to our 2022-2023 winners, Jeanette Starring's class from Dan Mini Elementary and Jennifer Wheelhouse and Melissa Nilson's classes from Solano Widenmann Leadership Academy!
