Electronics Recycling Competition Results

During the entire month of April twelve area schools participated in an electronic round up with NextStep Recycling and the Eugene/Springfield Eco-School Network. Congratulations to all of the schools and neighbors who participated.

The completed art was made entirely from salvaged materials from NextStep and MECCA. It was presented as a winning trophy for the winner of the community-wide electronics recycling competition.
The winning trophy for the winner of the community-wide electronics recycling competition was created in a neighborhood art workshop using salvaged materials from NextStep and MECCA..

The community dropped off electronics to NextStep and had their donations weighed and asked those pounds to be counted for one of the schools. NextStep also had bins at each of the schools for ten days, those weights were added to the total pounds collected for each school. The results were amazing.
